The 12th annual SW HOPE: Feed the Hungry campaign runs from February 11 through April 14. This year, 40+ faith and other community partners are fighting hunger in our community by collecting food and funds in support of Neighborhood House’s Emergency Food Box Program.
Neighborhood House operates the largest food pantry on Portland's West Side, currently providing emergency food boxes for over 1,400 individuals each month. This year, the goal is to collect 200,000 pounds of food ($1 = four pounds of food) over the course of the SW HOPE campaign. This amount will allow us to feed our hungry neighbors for three months.
Participating is a great way to tangibly meet needs in our community and bring God’s Kingdom in our neighbors' lives. There are many ways for the Missio family to be involved, including donating food, money, dining at local restaurants that have “Dine to Donate” events, and of course, participating in different fundraiser events including the SW Hope 5k Run/Walk!
