About Oregon Food Bank

     The Waterfront Blues Festival is owned and produced by
Oregon Food Bank. 


Who we are and what we doChild

Our mission: To eliminate hunger and its root causes… because no one should be hungry.

Oregon Food Bank collects food from farmers, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, individuals and government sources. We distribute that food through a Statewide Network of 21 Regional Food Banks and approximately 970 partner agencies serving all of Oregon and Clark County, Washington.

Distributing food is not all we do. In our work to eliminate hunger in Oregon, we believe we must also address the root causes of hunger through public policy, nutrition and garden education, and public awareness.

Last year, the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival, presented by First Tech Federal Credit Union, raised $1,043,571 for Oregonians facing hunger.

Your donations at the gate and purchase of tickets and passes make a difference!
