The Archdiocese of Portland, working through a grant from the USDA, is making food boxes available at parishes throughout the archdiocese, according to Fr. Jim Gallagher, C.S.C., Campus Ministry. There is no requirement to be a member of a parish, just stop by when they are distributing and pick up a box. More information, including schedules and locations, is available using this link.
The St. Vincent de Paul Society also runs food pantries throughout the Portland area. Please call (503) 235-8431 for information on which pantries are closest to you for their hours and scope of operation. Some pantries are by appointment only, others are walk-in pantries, and others offer only home delivery. When you call they can provide you with this information.
