Newberg FISH available as resource for students

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

Do you know a student who may benefit – or have family members that may benefit – from access to fresh produce as well as staple foods (rice, pasta, tortillas, canned vegetables, etc.)?

If so, keep Newberg FISH in mind as a resource. FISH provides food assistance in a respectful way to all those who come in and voice a need. They have a rule that they never turn anyone away.

To be eligible for a full food basket (with USDA food) there are some basic income restrictions, and a student must live in Newberg or Dundee. However, even students who do not meet these standards are eligible to receive the non-USDA food selection available at FISH.

A student simply needs to take a piece of his or her mail to the office. No Social Security numbers or intrusive personal details are collected. All FISH materials are available in English and Spanish.

To learn more about FISH, visit their website at newbergfish.org or write info@newbergfish.org. The office is located at 125-A S. Elliott Road in Newberg.
