Supplemental Food Programs


FOOD for Lane County provides food and help through these supplemental programs:

Trillium Produce Plus

 

Trillium Produce Plus brings high-quality fresh fruits and vegetables to people in need at community and neighborhood locations. The produce is provided free of charge.

FOOD for Lane County is committed to getting fruits and vegetables to community members who cannot typically afford such nutritious food.This is part of the solution to fighting both hunger and obesity and establishing positive lifelong eating habits.

Who can get Produce Plus?

  • Households in Lane County living at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level can qualify for the program. This is a higher income requirement than for a pantry food box (which is 185% FPL) in recognition that people of all income brackets can struggle with food insecurity.
  • There is no program enrollment; all who come can be served, as long as they sign the self-declaration statement that they meet the income requirement.
