FOOD for Lane County

Eugene, OR

FOOD for Lane County (FFLC) is a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit food bank dedicated to eliminating hunger in Lane County, Oregon by creating access to food. FFLC will use grant funds in collaboration with the Oregon State Hospital to purchase a dehydrator, which will aid in the creation of fruit leathers. The hospital’s patients will produce the fruit leathers in the facility’s commercial kitchen, which will help build patients’ pride and confidence. This collaboration will allow them to provide local fruit in a form that is easy to transport through their Emergency Food Boxes and in children’s programs.
