Neighbors Together of Union County hosts a weekly Fresh Alliance Food Bank distribution, a monthly food bank box distribution and we also have Emergency Firewood available for those in need.
Fresh Alliance distributes every Tuesday and the La Grande Food Bank distributes on the last Saturday of the month.

Social distancing parameters have been implemented and are in place at food bank and Fresh Alliance Events!
Fresh Alliance hand out times can vary. Basically we can’t hand out food until it arrives from local vendors.

The Food Bank is held on the next-to-last Saturday whenever there is a holiday at the end of the month.
For example, in May, when Memorial Day falls on the last weekend, the Food Bank is the Saturday before that.”
Here’s how our food bank works:
We buy our food from the State of Oregon, canned goods, staples, etc and gather donated food from several sources. Sometimes it’s a trucker that is running heavy and needs to off-load a ton of potatoes. Off we go to help them off-load and then we store and distribute as we can. Very little food is wasted! And, yes, the crazy stuff our volunteers do to serve our community!
