Food Programs

Willamalane’s food programs provide inexpensive or free food to serve the needs of the Springfield-area community. 

Donate food
Willamalane’s summer events are food drives! Bring a non-perishable food donation to Sounds like Summer concerts in the park and get in free. All donations benefit Willamalane food programs and your neighbors in Springfield. 

You can also stop by Willamalane Adult Activity Center during regular operating hours to donate food and personal hygiene items. See items that are often needed.

Food Pantry

Willamalane Adult Activity Center is home to a food pantry supported by Burrito Brigade. The program rescues food that would otherwise go in a landfill, turning wasted food into a free grocery store for the community. No income verification or personal identification is required to take part in this program. 

Thanks to Escudo Latino, El Centro Cares, Springfield Alliance for Equity and Respect (SAfER), Community Alliance of Lane County (CALC), Burrito Brigade, and National Recreation and Parks Association for their collaboration on this project.
