Portland Food Projecthttp://portlandfoodproject.org
Portland Food Proejct has 3 goals. 1 - to provide a regular supply of food to our hungry neighbors 2 - to create new neighborhood connections and strengthen our community 3 - to serve as a model for other communities. We sponsor non-perishable food collections 6 times a year. Our Neighborhood Coordinators collect the food donations from donors in their neighborhood on the 2nd Saturday of every other month. They then take the food to a central collection point where it is weighed, sorted and distributed to local food pantries. The pantries will then disburse their share of the food collected to those experiencing food insecurity in their area.
