Since its inception, the NW Electronics Design & Manufacturing Expo (NEDME; formerly OctoberBest) has partnered with Oregon Food Bank (OFB), donating its proceeds to the hunger-fighting organization. In fact, over the 14-year history of the expo, NEDME has donated over 3,200 pounds of food and over $30,000 to OFB.
The reason for the continued support is simple: OFB is making a real difference in the lives of hungry families in our community. The center of a massive network of agencies—over 870—that spreads across Oregon and Southwest Washington, OFB is advocating for public policy, promoting nutrition and garden education, and working to strengthen community food systems.
As in years past, the expo’s admission proceeds and canned/dry food donations go directly to OFB. So join us this year and help fight hunger. Register to attend NEDME today, and consider a donation to Oregon Food Bank.
