I want to give my heartfelt thanks to the employees of the State of Oregon for their tremendous service to the public, and for their support helping feed their neighbors through Governor’s State Employee Food Drive activities.

This year we received a generous donation from the Gold Beach Patrol Office, and a total of $7,749.94 in cash donations, 1,364 pounds of food and 21 pounds of hygiene products from across the state. Despite the challenges that state and federal employees face in these uncertain times, we are impressed by the continued commitment of state employees to help give families a chance to thrive, and donate time and time again.

To find out how to help feed hungry children and families on the South Coast visit We greatly appreciate our volunteers and donors’ support of the South Coast Food Share, and you can make online donations through our virtual food drive.
