Steve Murray, who runs the Food Bank here in central Oregon says he's certainly seen the need increase.  The region's food bank supplies food to forty different agencies.

 

"Those agencies delivir about 20 thousand meals every month.  If you go back like four years, they were serving 12 to 13 thousands every month.  So you can see there's been a signfiicant increase.  And twenty thousand is eight percent of our population.  And thats every month, 12 months a year , all year round.

 

The state-wide surveys found more than half the repsondents say they ran out of SNAP benefits or the high cost of food caused them to go to the food bank to feed their families.
