Clark County food bank shipments from Oregon end

A monthly distribution of produce to the Clark County Food Bank is ending.

"We don't have access to 10,000-acre farms in Clark County, we don't have access to the entire state of Oregon like the Oregon Food Bank has," said Alan Hamilton, executive director of the Clark County Food Bank.

While the Oregon Food Bank's "Harvest Share" program is withdrawing from Clark County, Hamilton said the overall amount of fresh produce that the Clark County Food Bank is redistributing to local food pantries has actually gone up, not down. The problem, he said, is particular pantries where people have grown used to regular Harvest Share distributions.
