Where there's a will, there's a way. And former board member Olivia Smith selected a bequest to recognize Oregon Food Bank in her will.
Albertsons donated 3-million pounds of food to OFB during fiscal year 2008-09 – making it the number one food donor within any single fiscal year. That’s enough food to help agencies fill about 60,000 emergency food boxes for hungry families.
