    Food Donor of the Year Ron LeFore Family Farms

For many years, Ron LeFore Family Farms have quietly donated to food banks throughout the Feeding America network. They produce and pack some of the Northwest’s finest apples. Within their commercial packing lines there is a “food bank” category. This high quality product will go to families in need throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Regence employees provided 1,355 meals through a food drive and volunteered a total of 359 hours repacking food. In addition, Regence and their employees made substantial financial contributions to Oregon Food Bank.
