The Clark Library is collecting food for the Oregon Food Bank this holiday season, and all faculty and staff are invited to donate holiday extras or use spare meal points on goods at Mack’s Market. In the Portland metropolitan region, an average of 270,000 people per month get their meals from local pantries and emergency food boxes. Any food donations will help families in Oregon and Southwest Washington. The most needed foods include canned meat, canned and boxed meals, nut butters, canned or dried beans and lentils, pasta and rice, canned fruits and vegetables, juice, and cooking oil. A donation barrel is located in the library lobby, and each addition will help toward the library’s goal of collecting 300 pounds food.
