Coastal Farm & Fleet joins the fight against hunger

People who want to help fight hunger in Washington County can double their contribution through the end of the year, thanks to a partnership between Coastal Farm & Ranch and Oregon Food Bank West.

Coastal, which has a store in Cornelius, is matching every dollar donated in Washington County up to $1,000. That means Oregon Food Bank West could receive $2,000 to kick off 2015.

“Our store in Cornelius is fortunate to be part of such a terrific community,” says Coastal Farm & Ranch’s owner Buzz Wheeler. “This is our opportunity to give back and support the less fortunate families and hard working people in need of a good meal.”

A $5 donation provides 15 meals, according to the food bank. So, a $2,000 donation would provide 6,000 meals to hungry families in Washington County.

People can donate in person to the warehouse at 1870 NW 173rd Ave. in Beaverton or mail donations to the Oregon Food Bank, 7900 N.E. 33rd Drive, Portland, OR 97211. People can also donate online at www.oregonfoodbank.org/donate
