Western Eagle Foundation Community Food Bank
We provide the opportunity for community agencies to pick up bulk food via pallets (approximately 1.9 million pounds a year) every Thursday and deliver to outlying communities to help feed people in need, benefitting 117,800 families annually. On average, more than 20 registered nonprofit and faith-based organizations show up with trucks, vans, and cars to have the food pallets loaded and transport to families in need of food living in outlying communities, where food insecurity is high, and it may be difficult to drive or afford gasoline to get to a store or food pantry.
Western Eagle Foundation Hunger Heroes
Western Eagle Foundation collaborates with other agencies to coordinate and maximize services to clients. Nonprofit organizations pick up monthly quantities of food boxes and/or food box vouchers to serve veterans, shut-in seniors, and community youth and families in need of food. Western Eagle Foundation thanks them for helping us extend our community outreach to those in need of food.
Western Eagle Foundation Work Development-
Western Eagle Foundation believes in giving everyone a second chance and an opportunity to grow. The work development program is offered to volunteer youth, young adults, seniors, individuals with disabilities, veterans, high school students, special needs groups and those recovering from addictions. Volunteers learn new skills in working for a nonprofit organization, with a food and home goods store, and learn how to serve both clients in need of food and customers shopping for the lowest price. Volunteers can move forward toward their goals and increase their skill set in stocking, packing, shelving, sorting, pricing, cashiering, customer service, work ethics, business policies and procedures.
