Josephine County Food Bank

3658 Upper River Rd. Grants Pass, OR 97526

The Food Bank has been a fixture in Josephine County since 1990. Originally we were part of the Josephine County Community Action Agency and were run as a program of the county. During these years, we served hungry individuals and families all over the county and built some of our longest-lasting relationships.
In 2005 the County discontinued funding for the Food Bank and the United Community Action Network stepped in and the Food Bank began to grow. In 2010 a community collaboration among the City of GP, UCAN, Rotary Clubs of GP, and local donors resulted in the construction of a new 10,000 square foot food storehouse and the establishment of Raptor Creek Farm, located on the property to grow food for local families.
Today, the Josephine County Food Bank is a stand-alone, independent non-profit organization. We continue to serve our community from our food distribution center at Raptor Creek Farm located at 3658 Upper River Road in Grants Pass.

The Family Connection

The Family Connection provides a regional parenting hub where parents can come together, learn effective parenting skills, be introduced to community resources and find support from other parents. We also provide organizations and agencies the ability to contract an evidence based parenting series or workshop for their clients.

As an Oregon Parenting Education Collaborative, we partner with local organizations, businesses, schools, daycare centers, and churches, to serve parents and children. The courses in parenting that we offer are all willingly attended because those who come are provided with an engaging experience. Our parenting education series and one-day workshops celebrate positive learning and help parents become the kind of caregivers and role models their children want and need.
