People east of the Cascades are also pitching in some help for hungry families in the area.
Today was 'Supermarket Saturday' in Klamath Falls. Cash and food donations were taken at seven supermarkets.
Organizers say between the money and food, they raised roughly 175-thousand pounds, that's more than last year.
The proceeds will go to the Klamath and Lake counties food bank.
Officials say they're seeing more need than ever, with one in four families receiving four food boxes in the last year. If you would like to donate visit klamathfoodbank.org
