Josephine County Food Bank – Shining a Light on Hunger

June 22, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


It is with great excitement that we invite you to participate in a very special event, our signature fundraiser, Shining a Light on Hunger, on June 22, 2023, at Weekend Beer Company. This event is an essential source of funding for the Food Bank and will feature dinner, live music, community awards celebrating local Hunger Heroes, and an auction. Although it is a casual get-together, it is also a big affair! Our goal this year is to raise $65,000.

This year we are adding a new component to the fundraiser, the Hunger Heroes Awards. We are excited to honor our community members for their contributions, leadership, and commitment in helping with our mission to end hunger in Josephine County and ensure equal access to healthy food for all.

We encourage anyone in the community to nominate any organization, leader, volunteer, or group who is dedicated to bringing food security and improving the quality of life for our community.

At our core, the Josephine County Food Bank is an organization by the community, for the community. We would not be able to operate without assistance from the many donors, volunteers, community partners, and more that work to end hunger for all our Josephine County residents. This is our way of acknowledging that it takes a village, and shining a spotlight on the effort it takes to feed one out of five Josephine County residents every month.

These awards are open to EVERYONE in our community. From projects big to small, we hope to receive many displays of hunger heroism throughout Josephine County. Award recipients will be independently chosen by a committee composed of community members. Nominations must be received by May 31, 2023. Awards will be announced during the event on June 22, 2023, at Weekend Beer Company.

Tickets to Shining a Light on Hunger are $30 and can be purchased on our website, Hunger Hero nominations can also be submitted on our website.


The Josephine County Food Bank, working through its network of 12 pantries, 3 community kitchens, and 11 partner agencies, helps to feed more than 15,000 people throughout the county each month. JCFB distributes more than two million pounds of food every year. Dedicated volunteers, a small staff, generous community partners, individual donors, and larger programs like the Oregon Food Bank and Feeding America work together to make this possible.
