Northeast Emergency Food Programhttp://www.emoregon.org/NE_volunteer_opps.php
Northeast Emergency Food Program meets the urgent food needs of our north and northeast Portland neighbors while working to develop community solutions to secure access to adequate, affordable and healthy food. We ground our work in the belief that nutritious food is a basic human need and a building block for a healthy life of possibility. Northeast Emergency Food Program is a vital part of the community ministry network of the Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon. Our food program is a community-based response to the unmet food needs of our neighbors. We primarily serve: • Families with children; over 40 percent of our recipients are children. • The working poor. • People with special needs, including the sick and the elderly. • A high percentage of immigrants and refugees.
