Anja WTH (she/her)

Are we still able to keep the items we've previously added to the cart as we update it throughout the week or do we need to do anything differently to keep the existing items in the cart?
Noah Adler (he/him)
49:39
Currently, pack size is in some cases unclear. Will the update help, hurt, or neither?
Noah Adler (he/him)
50:00
How can we access this video, and others, moving forward?

Ron S.
55:08
Are you going to have more complete product info than before?
Roger Rossman
55:11
Will the description of the product be more descriptive ? I often find the description now very ambiguous
SVDP Forest Grove
57:02
Will you keep delivering indefinitely?
Courtney (she/her)
57:16
SVDP Forest Grove - we hope so!
Emma Van Pelt
58:01
Is there a place where we can request products? For example, I haven’t seen apple sauce in a while.
Anja WTH (she/her)
59:51
I just wanted to double check that we still need to wait to add perishables to the cart until a day or two before delivery?
Pat
01:00:19
If I submit my order and it is accepted, can I still add some items say the next day?
Noah Adler (he/him)
01:00:55

Courtney (she/her)
01:01:06
https://ofbportals.oregonfoodbank.org/home/partner_support
Troy Linden (he/him)
01:01:22

Judy Lee, she/her, Community for Positive Aging
01:02:49
Will be there a desktop vs mobile version?
Courtney (she/her)
01:03:00
@Noah - if you are on oregonfoodbank.org - scroll to the very bottom of the page and you'll see OFB Portals - that's the Partner Support Site
Noah Adler (he/him)
01:03:24
Thanks
helenwragg
01:03:32

Jenna Stathopoulos (She/her)
01:06:24
Is it okay to put in cart Friday if we plan to pick up on Monday?
Jenna Stathopoulos (She/her)
01:06:40
ie- Is OFB checking order over the weekend?
Ron S.
01:07:02
Is the amount of an item shown is for ALL agencies or just ours?

01:12:23
Thank you Laura
Judy Lee, she/her, Community for Positive Aging
01:12:37
Think I will really like the new site. Much more user friendly it seems!
Noah Adler (he/him)
01:12:39
Yay! Good work
SVDP Forest Grove
01:12:39
good - we like the changes
Fran Jensenj’s iPad (2)
01:12:42
Looks good
Fran Scott
01:12:50
Good, well presented! Thanks Laura!
Troy Linden (he/him)
01:13:02
I believe the small/medium packs can go up to 5 pounds. I find that it is difficult to move a 5 pound bag of something to an individual, especially since we can not divide a pack into smaller portions as that is considered "processing". Anyway we can get more specific weights? Thanks!
helenwragg
01:13:04
I think it’s great. Thank you
CM Tom
01:13:07
very helpful
Ron S.
01:13:37
It looks like an easy transition to me. Thanks!
Joni Kuhlman
01:13:42
This was great, thank you!
timothy.shevlin
01:13:48
Can we make a payment on the site?
Steve Liverman REACH CDC
01:13:51
Is there a timeline for hearing about grants for this year?
mary zodrow
01:14:01
looks to be much more user friendly
Anja WTH (she/her)
01:14:30
I appreciate that the new format seems much more modern and user-friendly without being unrecognizable to the current system. I also appreciate the ode to online shopping which most folx are already familiar with using.
Laura -OFB- (She/her)
01:15:50
Yes! The goal is to use "modern" and "Current" internet ordering technology for this.
Jamie Truitt (she/her) OFB

01:17:21
When are you considering more tfap applications?
Margie Yemoto Greene
01:17:23
What’s OFB fiscal year? Thx
Judy Lee, she/her, Community for Positive Aging
01:17:25
Can we get more protein (eggs, meat) items for free or for to purchase?
hannahroberts
01:17:57
Also is it possible flag items kosher halal etc?
SVDP Forest Grove
01:20:13
how about more milk?
hannahroberts
01:20:24
Double thumbs up!
Judy Lee, she/her, Community for Positive Aging
01:20:26
Thank you Laura, Courtney and team for having fresh tofu!!!
CM Tom
01:21:30
I haven't seen fruit in boxes for some time. Can we get this?
CM Tom
01:22:35
We can't get a tote into our Pantry
Pat
01:22:54
Butter, was so plentiful, Will you be getting more for us.?
Jack Koran
01:23:37
wow
Kathy Harrison
01:24:18
If the produce boxes go away, is it possible to get smaller quantities of produce? The totes are just too much for us.
Toni Matt
01:24:31
What is the process to be authorized to pick up at Amazon Fresh Warehouse?
Alex Van Pelt- Gladstone School Pantry
01:24:39
I like the idea of an agency bulletin board or site where we can share/ask questions etc.
BRAD BUSIEK
01:25:26
What about bags? Will there be paper or reusable bags available to all agencies? We spend about $80 per week on bags at US Chefstore.
Laura -OFB- (She/her)
01:25:40
Kathy... Yes! We are working to get Produce available to smaller agencies in smaller quantities so there is variety for ya'll.
Kathy Harrison
01:25:51
Yay!
Joni Kuhlman

hannahroberts
01:26:02
is there a way to get involved in that culturally specific purchasing conversation?
Ashley Arrington
01:26:20
I have the same concern as Brad
helenwragg
01:26:48
Paper bags with handles would be great, if possible. Thank you
Kathy Harrison
01:26:58
Any ideas on how to share bread? Everyone seems to want to give us bread and we are often overrun.
Steve Liverman REACH CDC
01:27:13
The random boxes of hygiene and cleaning products are great! Will that be a regular thing going forward?
Ashley Arrington
01:27:59
My FFM today was outdoors today in the rain. We ran out of bags and given it is currently a drive-through non-contact, we do not ask participants to bring their own. We had boxes, but they got soaked through and it was very difficult to distribute the food safely.
Margie Yemoto Greene
01:29:01
Thank you for alerting us to the Amazon closing and offering their equipment. It was gold to us!
Lisa Bersani
01:29:39
Nara Outpatient wants some, and if it's not sourced from OFB, it's ok to share with them.
Sochettra Watson
01:29:40
No, i don’t need bread.
Noah Adler (he/him)
01:29:53
I can help with ideas for bread. Noah Adler 608-347-9205
Jackie Liang (he/him)
01:30:30
Hey Ashley can you remind me if your site has any canopies/needs any more?
Tabitha Alajmi
01:31:00
Can OFB do agency direct referrals when hygiene offers come available?
Toni Matt
01:31:37
We use reusable green bags. Hippo is the name an brand.
Ashley Arrington
01:31:53
We have 3 canopies, but the rain comes from every direction, and we walk the items to the vehicles. It would be nice to have those canopies with the walls!
Jackie Liang (he/him)
01:33:59
Hey Toni - is that the Hippo Sak brand?
Pat
01:34:19
I requested sanitizer in small containers......but received 4 gallon containers. Now we need smaller containers .
Tabitha Alajmi
01:34:26
Will all available produce be posted on the new Primarius or will we have to continue to email Christina every time we want to know what else is available?
Jackie Liang (he/him)
01:34:28
Ashley - let me follow up w/ you to see if we have any canopy walls in stock!
Courtney (she/her)
01:34:38
Not sure if this was already shared, here is the info on entering your monthly reports - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1sN7WAZaf53THXpROSwMz6TCChI6G0na22_VCA4BTVu8/edit
Toni Matt
01:35:05
Yes. They have started making a bag that is lighter. Not a 4 mil bag. That is just as sturdy.
Jackie Liang (he/him)
01:35:26
Thanks for bringing that to our attention
Tabitha Alajmi
01:36:07
I stopped adding them into the comments because they didn't seem to be seen by who is reviewing it.
Judy Lee, she/her, Community for Positive Aging
01:36:18

Groceries4Grout
01:38:50
G4G has had success in collecting grocery bags from the neighborhood. Use next-door.com
Alex Van Pelt- Gladstone School Pantry
01:38:59
Find another pantry to share with Steve
Ashley Arrington
01:39:02
Do you still have the partnership with OSU for the food demos?
Joan
01:39:19
I assume we will get notified when the current primarius system is going to go down
Kathy Harrison
01:39:57
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! We are closed tomorrow.
