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.
