Every spring, multiple Southwest Portland Faith Organizations and Community Partners join hands to meet the need of hunger specifically, by working to supply Neighborhood House’s food pantry, the largest food pantry west of the Willamette.
We were blown away by the many folks who joined hands with us last year. Together with a matching gift from the Richard and Helen Phillips Charitable Fund we raised more than $10,000 - the equivalent of more than 40,000 pounds for the Emergency Food Box Program at Neighborhood House!
This is where you come in. We invite you to run with us in our third annual SW Hope Feed the Hungry 5K on Sat. April 14, 2018 at 9am at Gabriel Park because each $1 we raise together far outweighs it’s worth in canned goods individually. If we run together, our neighbors here in SW Portland won’t have to experience the insecurity of not knowing where their next meal is coming from.
"You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land."
