On January 31, 2017, a contingent from the Multnomah Bar Association's Young Lawyers Section (YLS) devoted its Community Service Day to helping out at the Oregon Food Bank. Sarah Carlin Ames, along with other five other YLS Service to the Public Committee members volunteered to repackage a total of 7,027 lbs. of oranges and 12,059 lbs. of apples for the Oregon Food Bank's statewide network of 21 regional food banks and approximately 970 partner agencies.
The Oregon Food Bank prides itself on not only providing food but also on addressing the root causes of hunger through public policy, nutrition, garden education and public awareness.
