AT NO COST TO YOU
SUPPORT FLORENCE FOOD SHARE WITH AMAZON.COM PURCHASES
All donations are considered confidential. Donors names and contact information are not shared with anyone, unless that donor specifically requests to be publically recognized. Our donor mailing list (for purposes of invitation to events, newsletters and other information pertinent to our food pantry) is never shared with anyone. The privacy of donors, prospective donors, website visitors, and members of the general public is important to Florence Food Share. To assure that all donors receive respect and trust, FFS adheres to the Donor Bill of Rights:
Each dollar you donate allows us to access and distribute approximately 35 pounds of food when we order that food from our supervising agency, Food for Lane County. Because we distribute close to 50,000 pounds of food every month, your cash donations are what sustain our ability to keep the pantry stocked with food to distribute to those in need. Also, there are costs associated with distributing the food, including lights, refrigeration, gardening expenses and staff time. All donations are tax deductible.
There are a number of ways you can help Food Share on an ongoing basis with your giving. You can continue a personal legacy by giving a portion of your estate to Food Share in the following ways:
Wills or Bequests
Trusts (Charitable Lead Trust or Charitable Remainder Trust)
Charitable Gift Annuities
Life Insurance Beneficiaries
Mutual Fund Beneficiaries
Donor Advised Funds
In addition, you can make tax deductible donations to an endowment fund with the Western Lane Community Foundation. These donations can be made to:

Please contact your financial adviser or financial institution for more information. All donations will be acknowledged with a receipt, if requested.
Florence Food project
Have you seen our green bags around town? Right now, many local area churches are participating in The Florence Food Project. Every week or two, Florence Food Share receives these green bags from the churches, which have been filled with non-perishable food items for our pantry. We receive the bags full of food, and then give the church representative the empty bags to bring back to the church to fill up again. If your church is currently not participating in this project, please bring this to the attention of your pastor or minister. In addition, this project is available to individuals. We have many, many green bags. If you'd like to pick up a green bag for yourself...... Or a few dozen for your church, just give us a call: 541-997-9110.
Donate Time: Volunteer!
Food Share needs on-call volunteers for when our regular volunteers go on vacation, or occasionally become ill. We also have an amazing garden that needs help during the spring, summer and fall. That's where YOU can help. Are you able to volunteer in 2.5 or 4.5 hour shifts occasionally throughout the month? Click the button below in order to send us your contact information, or come into the pantry and fill out a volunteer application. Thank you!
