ACCESS’ Food for Hope grocery bag drive, now in its 36th year, is the largest annual community food and fund drive helping to fight hunger in Jackson County. The goal for this food and fund drive is to collect 10,000 pounds of food and $30,000 to help support ACCESS’ Nutrition Programs.
Rosebud Media will distribute grocery bags through their newspapers (Mail Tribune, Daily Tidings and Savor) on Wednesday, December 4th.
The bags can be filled with non-perishable food items and dropped off at ACCESS, any Jackson County Fire Station, Umpqua Bank, the Mail Tribune or see the list below for one of the church locations accepting grocery bags. Filled grocery bags should be dropped off by December 31st. For those who do not receive a bag in one of those three papers, but who want to donate nonperishable food, any grocery bag or box can be used.
