Over the holidays, we saw a record number of volunteers sign up, jump in, and help get food to those in need.
We want to say THANK YOU to the thousands of volunteers who bagged food, boxed food, unpacked food, repacked food, dropped off food drive barrels, picked up food drive barrels, drove to grocery stores, sorted Fresh Alliance food, organized food drives, organized funds drives, answered phones, entered data, greeted guests, cleaned the facility, and so much more.
You probably didn’t realize it at the time, but this past winter YOU made history. Here’s how…

Enjoying a HUGE turkey dinner is time-honored tradition for most families on Thanksgiving. Since Thanksgiving is a holiday that centers on food, we think it is the perfect opportunity to host an event to help people who simply don’t have enough food. And this year, Clark County Turkey Trot was a huge success, thanks to friends and supporters like you.
On Friday, September 14, 2018, Clark County Food Bank hosted their 7th annual Taste & See auction fundraiser. This year’s Taste & See raised over $291,489, which translates into 1,164,000 meals for residents in need throughout our community. This was Clark County Food Bank’s most profitable fundraiser to date.
The Ed & Dollie Lynch Fund donated $130,000 and Vancouver Rotary Foundation donated $5,000 to Clark County Food Bank. The combined $135,000 will be used to purchase a new extra-large refrigerated box truck with a required liftgate.
