An anonymous donor will match up to $100,000 of donations during February.
People can donate at any Market of Choice by scanning coupons at the register or directly to Food for Lane County online, by phone, or mail.
These donations will help a large percent of the county’s population.
“Thirty-nine percent of our county is eligible to come to receive emergency food from us. That’s a huge amount. Thirty-nine percent of all people in Lane County,” said Beverlee Hughes, Food for Lane County Executive Director.
Food for Lane County officials also say this is the largest anonymous donation in several years.
But, since this is a matching donation, the donor will only give as much money as the food bank receives through donations.
