The Annual Ken DeRouchie Band Food Drive for the Oregon Food Bank:

Started in 2014, Ken and the band wanted to do something to help those less fortunate in their community. Ken spoke to small business and venue owners and got them to agree to host a food barrel in their location to collect food donations for the food drive. The results were the collection of 1,395 Lbs. of food in the first year!

In 2015, The total collected was 1,822 Lbs. of food plus $325.00 in fund donations. In 2016, The total collected was 1,981 Lbs. of food plus $1,500.00 in fund donations. In 2017 the total collected was 1,276 Lbs of foor and $2,166 in donations.

Here's a letter from Kyle Hummel, Corporate & Community Relations Coordinator at Oregon Food Bank,

Morning Ken,

It looks like you brought in 1,981 pounds of food in this yearís food drive. So thatís 1,651 meals! Then you have to add in that $1,500 from Banner Bank which is another 4,500 meals! So the grand total is: 6,481 meals that you provided to our neighbors in need this holiday season Ken! Every meal should be going to help feed one person so really you helped change/improve almost 6,500 peopleís lives year alone. And when you think about the years of support you have given you are taking about so many thousands of people itís just hard to comprehend (at least for me).

I hope you find a lot of happiness and satisfaction in those numbers Ken! You are am amazing person and such an amazing partner to Oregon Food Bank and our communities!
