Community Support

(Updated May 7, 2021)


The City of Eugene is working hard with our partners at Lane County and Springfield to ensure our community has important information about local, state and federal resources to help residents and businesses significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of these programs and services are available to everyone regardless of where you live. All Eugene residents regardless of immigration status are eligible for City of Eugene programs and services.

Local, State and Federal Resources

For many people, COVID-19 comes with worries about how to put food on the table. See the following list of resources and information to help access food. 


  • FOOD for Lane County
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
    The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps) helps supplement monthly food budgets of families with low-income to buy the food they need to maintain good health and allow them to direct more of their available income toward essential living expenses.
  • Need Food?
    The Department of Human Services has developed a new website to help connect Oregonians with:
    • Local school meal programs
    • Food banks and pantries
    • Meals for older community members
    • Applications for food assistance programs
  • Oregon Food Bank: Food Finder
  • The Dining Room
     Located at 270 W. 8th Avenue in Eugene, the Dining Room will serve to-go meals Monday through Thursday at no cost between 12-3 p.m. (or until food runs out) instead of seating guests inside.
  • School Meals
  • Support for Senior Citizens
    Seniors can access Meals on Wheels service and delivery of Senior Grocery
  • Support Veterans and Their Families
    The Veteran Resource Navigator tool, developed by the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs, includes economic, health, education, housing and food, and other resources. Veterans can also access additional assistance by calling an ODVA Veteran Resource Navigator at 800-692-9666.
