Newberg FISH is a member of the Oregon Food Network, a cooperative network of agencies focused on providing emergency food.
FISH is an acronym, which stands for Friends In Service to Humanity.
Newberg FISH focuses its efforts on providing emergency food services, as well as cooperating with other local agencies to help people meet other critical needs such as housing, medical and dental care, and job placement.
Newberg FISH staff members are 100% volunteer, as they have been since our founding in 1970.
Last year, Newberg FISH assisted 16,388 people (average 1,366 each month) and 4,648 households (average 387 each month).
2015 marks our 45th anniversary. Forty-five years after our founding, our focus is still neighbors lending a hand to local neighbors and families in need.
PICKUP THE NEED community food drive this Sunday!
2nd Street Church and other participating churches are collecting food for Newberg FISH. Their pickups will deliver donations to our warehouse on Elliott Road this Sunday - just in time for the lean winter months. Join in and bring your donation to FISH this Sunday between 1- 4 pm. Thank you, Newberg, for your continuing support!
Come to the CAR SMASH!
This Saturday, October 1, there will be a tailgate party at the GFU football game. It begins at 12:00, with the game at 2:00. Enjoy food trucks and take a swing at the car for $1. All CAR SMASH proceeds will benefit our Newberg FISH emergency food pantry.
The amazing crew from George Fox Serve Day made our Newberg FISH food bank sparkle! They scrubbed floors, windows, light fixtures, under shelves, behind refrigerators, .... they were tireless!
