Ashland Food Angels

A Rogue Valley Grassroots Volunteer Organization

Food Angel Volunteers

Ashland Food Angels is a grassroots, fully volunteer cooperative venture which helps organizations serving low income people in the Rogue Valley, primarily through the daily distribution of food retrieved from markets, bakeries and local organic farmers. The compound goals of providing food for those in need, offering an opportunity for self-help, self-reliance and community service, and keeping usable items out of the landfill have been met week after week since 1996.

Ashland Food Angels is an all volunteer organization. We have enjoyed the assistance of over 600 volunteers in over 20 years of operation. We are always in need of new volunteers for our expanding organization. We ask for a commitment of 4 hours a week and a monthly donation of 1 dollar. We have several areas of volunteer service, such as sorting, deliveries, fundraising and gardening.
