fish-bagThe Roseburg Food Project is a revolutionary way to collect food. Neighborhood Coordinators enlist their neighbors to become Donors to the FISH of Roseburg Food Pantry.

What is it
Neighbors donate a bag of food every two months. We supply the bag and pick up the food! This provides the FISH Food Pantry with a steady supply of food and gives the Donors the satisfaction of making a real difference in the local community.

How the Food Project Works
web0607-02It's a simple system, built around two types of volunteers:

  • Neighborhood Coordinators (NCs) agree to organize a small group of their neighbors to become Donors. Their "neighborhood" can be a few houses, several blocks, their work place, or any group they want to coordinate.
  • Food Donors are neighbors who agree to give food every two months.

When a Neighbor Joins

  • The NC gives Donors a reusable green Food Project bag and suggests that they buy one extra nonperishable grocery item each week.
  • Then every two months, NCs pick up each bag of food, leave an empty one, and bring the bags to the FISH Food Pantry.

When is Pickup Day?

  • Pickup day is the 2nd Saturday of each EVEN month (February, April, June, August, October and December).

Next Pickup Day: Saturday, October 11th
