The pantry, a partner of the Oregon Food Bank, is run by more than 70 volunteers. Last year it provided free food for 6,635 visitors, about 70 families each week.

Merkley's town hall was well-attended, including elected officials from the county commission and the Gladstone City Council, as well as students and staff from both Gladstone and Oregon City schools.
