Thanking our Donors & Volunteers
Organizations and businesses that support FISH through community events are deeply appreciated.
The November 10th Dine Out For FISH event has more than 30 participating restaurants, and support from other local businesses and organizations that are helping through donations and events on other nights. Thank you!

602 volunteers gave more than 10,600 hours to keep FISH up and running in 2019.
These volunteers help at all our sites by getting food out on the shelves. Breaking it down:
Hood River -- 8,800 hours
Parkdale -- 360 hours
Cascade Locks -- 1,481 hours
Whether you gave an hour of your time this year or came every week, we appreciate your service. We could not do all that we do without our volunteers! Thank you!
Thank you to the 20 or so people who faithfully pick up food from various businesses and deliver weekly to our sites.
Gardeners and Growers
Gardeners and growers provided thousands of pounds of fresh produce in 2021!
Fresh produce is a critical part of our mission. These foods are a healthy addition to meals and help teach children about healthful diets. Our backyard gardeners and valley growers helped us supply an amazing array of items: apples, blueberries, squash, carrots, pears, lettuces and kale, cherries, cucumbers, melons, peppers, and more.
If your garden is producing more than you can eat, freeze, can, or share with friends, consider us a spot where your beautiful produce will help your other neighbors in need. Thank you!
Donations from Individuals
Every day that we're open, people stop by with donations. It could be a bag of extra groceries, travel size toiletries from a recent trip, personal hygiene supplies, or "extra" items bought during a grocery sale. We're open for donations Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 7:30am to 11am, at our Hood River site.
