Haggen Food & Pharmacy launching food drives in Tualatin, Oregon City

Press Releases

 

November 3, 2011 • Oregon

A drive to fill the shelves of local food banks before the holidays is being conducted through Nov. 30 at Haggen Food & Pharmacy stores in Tualatin and Oregon City

Nonperishable food and cash donations will be collected for distribution by Tualatin School House Pantry and HOPE Food Pantry in Oregon City

Food banks are seeking canned food high in protein, canned fruit, pasta, rice and any other non-perishable food items. Donors also may purchase pre-stuffed bags of groceries that include tuna, macaroni and cheese, peaches, chili, green beans and pinto beans for $5 apiece at Haggen Food & Pharmacy stores or make donations at the cash register of $10 or $20.

Requests for assistance at local food banks have been steadily rising the last several years. Also, low-income families are hit harder by higher heating costs during fall and winter. Many food-bank clients are senior citizens or families with children.

“Small donations can add up to make a big difference in our communities,” said Becky Skaggs, spokesperson for Haggen Food & Pharmacy. “We encourage individuals, organizations and businesses to be generous in helping the hungry.”
