FOOD SHARE IS GETTING A FACELIFT!
Beginning Monday, September 29th, and for approximately 7-8 business days thereafter, Florence Food Share will be installing new flooring in our pantry. During renovations, our clients will not be able to walk around the pantry, in the shopper style that we currently utilize. Because of this, we will be serving our clients in the old fashioned, "food box" style. Clients will place their order, as they do now, and our volunteers will fill that order. In addition, for the first 2-3 days of the installation, we will be filling orders from the back of our building, as the flooring will be replaced in the lobby first. After the lobby floor has been replaced, we will re-open the lobby and continue to fill food box orders for the next several days until the flooring in the entire pantry is complete. Thank you for your patience while Food Share gets a face lift!
Florence Food Share is an emergency food box pantry located in Florence, Oregon, that provides emergency food to those in need, free of charge. We serve the communities of Florence, Dunes City and Westlake.
Fund Raising Campaign
During the entire month of September, Food Share has been given the opportunity to promote our food pantry on Global Giving, an online crowdfunding platform. Global Giving reaches millions of people every day, and it is our hope to raise $6,000 in order to have funding to expand our operating hours.
If we are able to raise a minimum of $5,000 from 40 or more donors, we will be granted a permanent presence on this website. The benefits of this are that an online presence increases our ability to reach individuals outside of the local Florence area. With your help, we can do this!
Beginning September 1st, please donate to this campaign, by clicking on the "Give Now" button to the left. Any questions? Don't hesitate to call Norma Barton, our director. She's happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have about this alternative way to donate to our food pantry. Thank you!
Florence Food Share requires all individuals and families needing a food box to fill out an application in order to receive our services. We require this upon your first visit to our pantry, and once a year thereafter, each July. This form provides us with basic information which is never shared with any outside agency. You can come in to our pantry to fill out this application or you can print one from the link below:
