We currently provide services throughout an 23,000 square mile area:
New Pine Creek
How To Help:
- Make a monetary donation, by cash, check or on-line at klamathfoodbank.org.
- If you have a garden and you’ve given produce to everybody you know and can’t find a home for the rest, WE’LL TAKE IT. All of it.
- Hold a food drive at your Birthday, Reunion, Anniversary, Halloween and/or Christmas parties. If 500 households hold a food drive and collect 10 pounds, that’s 5,000 pounds of food. It all adds up. We can provide invitation inserts letting people know about your food drive. Barrels are available too.
- Drop off food donations at the Senior Center or Goodwill.
- Hold a food drive at work. Call and we’ll deliver a nicely decorated barrel.
- Be a “Coin Crook.” Take a container to work, school or your service organization meeting and ask people to donate any change they may have. It adds up quickly. If you’d like us to provide you a container, just give us a call.
- Look for our coin boxes at local businesses and throw your change in the box.

If a family can access a little help when they need it, they can concentrate on their temporary financial crisis and getting through it. If seniors or people with disabilities can access food assistance, it frees up their small, fixed income to cover higher utility costs, prescriptions, etc.
Years ago, the Food Bank’s main mission was to provide emergency food assistance. We found there were many ways the food bank could expand its services to assist other non-profit programs. The non-profits listed below provide many vital services that promote positive outcomes and futures for children and adults. While they work on building these positive futures, they must also provide them with meals or snacks. The cost to provide food can take away dollars that could be used to make their programs the best they can be. We believe by providing food assistance we can be a partner in making a crucial difference in the outcome of a child’s development or an adult’s future. This is truly the way to get to the root causes of hunger.
