Donate Food


Below are listed the local Southern Oregon groups that are working to redirect food surpluses to the food insecure. The current food distribution system leaves too many people hungry and too much surplus food destined to be wasted and tossed in the landfill.


Access – 3630 Aviation Way Medford, OR (map) 541-779-6691. Provides emergency food boxes to hungry families and individuals in Jackson county through a network of over 24 food pantries

Ashland Emergency Food Bank – (541) 488-9544, 560 Clover Lane, Ashland (map). Receives non-perishable food and garden surplus

AREA FOOD PROJECTS – Food donations are picked up at your home every two months and donated to the food bank

Ashland Food Angels collect usable food daily from markets, bakers, etc., donating over 250,000 pounds of food annually, primarily to the Food Bank and community free meal programs. To donate food, help financially, or become a volunteer, contact Pamala Joy at 541-482-5330 or email

Uncle Food’s Diner Since its beginning in 1993, Uncle Food’s Diner has become the major feeding program for Ashland’s very poor and homeless residents. Each Tuesday, 4pm at the Ashland First Methodist Church (map), it provides a hot, nutritious meal to an average of 120 guests. Contact the Peace House office at 541 482-9625 or email

Neighborhood Harvest is a grassroots organization based in Ashland Oregon, dedicated to harvesting fruit, nuts, and produce that would otherwise go to waste from yards, gardens and farms in the Rogue Valley
