Current Food Drives
During this holiday season, more than ever, individuals and businesses are finding ways to help those who are less fortunate in our community by participating in food drives supporting ACCESS. Here are two:
35th ANNUAL FOOD FOR HOPE
GROCERY BAG FOOD & FUNDS DRIVE
Rosebud Media will distribute grocery bags through their newspapers (Mail Tribune, Daily Tidings and Savor) on Wednesday, Nov. 28. For those who won’t receive a bag via one of those papers, but who want to participate, any grocery bag or box can be used.
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 one of the following church locations:
675 Black Oak Drive
Mon-Thurs 8 a.m.-12 p.m. and 1-3 p.m.

Every dollar provides five pounds of food. ACCESS’ goal for this food and fund drive is 20,000 pounds of food and $40,000.
19th ANNUAL GREYSTONE COURT HOLIDAY TRADITION
FOOD & FUND DRIVE
From December 21-24 from 5:30-9:30 p.m., the residents of Greystone Court (off North Phoenix Road in East Medford) delight the local community with their holiday spirit while also collecting food and cash donations to help feed the hungry in Jackson County. This is their 19th annual food and fund drive. Over the years, this holiday tradition has collected more than 136,000 pounds of food and more than $322,696 toward feeding the community.
Residents of Greystone Court and ACCESS staff will be there to collect generous donations from the community. Foods rich in protein are especially in demand, including peanut butter, canned tuna, canned meat and beans.
Santa will be there nightly handing out candy canes to the young visitors. On Friday, Dec. 21, Human Bean will be providing hot chocolate while supplies last. For more information, call (541) 601-6793.
Year-around, you can drop off food or cash donations at ACCESS 3630 Aviation Way, Medford, Ore.
