Hand Up Project is also a partner agency with the  Oregon Food Bank

Through this partnership the pantry is able to offer the surrounding community a free “shopping style” food pantry to anyone who is in need. 

Pantry volunteers accompany participants through our pantry to shop for 5 to 7 days of food for their families.  We do our best to accommodate individuals dietary and cultural needs, as well as those with limited or no cooking facilities. Last year we averaged nearly 7 tons of food each month

Operating the pantry offers “Hand Up Project” a “hands on” opportunity to get to know and earn the trust of those requiring our services.  Food is a great way to breakdown social barriers as a first step in working with our homeless and near homelessness community and helping them connect with other needed services.

You can help!
