Birch Community Services shared 1,370,816 lbs of food with other agencies in 2016.

Birch Community Services partners with over 60 agencies who are serving the poor and needy in the Northwest.  These agencies include homeless shelters, food pantries, domestic violence shelters, and substance abuse centers. Some of these agencies serve clientele as far away as the Oregon coast and the Cascades mountain town of Welches. Although BCS does not track the numbers served by these groups, a recent survey of the agencies indicates that the number they regularly serve with the food BCS provides is 10,000-15,000 individuals.
