FOOD for Lane County
FFLC is part of Lane County’s Emergency Plan, playing a key role in making sure food is distributed where and when it is needed most. FFLC works with staff, volunteers and partner agencies to help respond to the needs of vulnerable community members, as always, and especially in this sensitive time.

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.

Seniors can access Meals on Wheels service and delivery of Senior Grocery.
