Sadly, the pandemic and other associated factors have created more wealth disparity and increased food scarcity for people living on the lowest incomes.
Clackamas Service Center expanded into a new warehouse space, which we call the Food Hub, in September 2021. The Food Hub expanded our food storage capacity by 8,000 square feet, and with so much more space, CSC can accept more food donations, buy more food, and re-distribute food on a much grander scale.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video must be worth a million, and we excitedly debuted a new video about our Food Hub at our supporter appreciation party in March. Our videographers captured one of our partner organizations, LoveOne, in action, and got some amazing drone footage inside the Hub!
The Food Hub has already increased food access far beyond what we expected in its first months. Through collaboration with over 21 other non-profits and mutual aid groups, volunteers, and donors, we’ve been able to lend food support to more than 10,000 people each month so far in 2022, and we hope to continue adding new partners, and reaching more people, in the months and years to come.
Collaborative community support is what makes this work possible. Whether you volunteer, donate, or tell your friends about CSC’s work, we appreciate you. Your support this year has been transformational!
