FOOD for Lane County provides both emergency and non-emergency food. Emergency food is available to individuals and households who meet income guidelines set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Non-emergency food is available to a wider range of individuals in recognition that people of all income brackets can struggle with food insecurity. FOOD for Lane County’s hunger relief efforts are focused on providing food assistance and increasing self-sufficiency for our neighbors living on limited resources.
