Call 503-363-1895 (NE Salem) or 503-315-2290 to schedule an appointment for a food box. If unable to call, please visit our locations during the hours listed below. Buildings are closed to the public, but we will provide a food box, contact-free. Our team asks you to help us stop this pandemic by wearing a face mask or covering, and observing physical distancing. We have face masks, coverings and hand sanitizer to provide you, if needed. In 2020, more than 2,500 families or individuals have received food assistance during the COVID-19 and other recent crisis.
The SE Salem food bank is located inside the Colonia LIbertad Apartments leasing office building!
The buildings are not numbered, so please look for the leasing office, which is located inside the building with the mural on the side. Park in spots labeled “OFFICE” or on the side street. Do not park in the numbered spots, as you may be towed.
