Our mission at Our Streets is to serve the underserved. We encourage growth and unity within our community through resources, gatherings, and education.
Bottom Line for Portland
Food is a fundamental human right, and people experiencing housing insecurity often lack accessibility to nutritious, well-rounded meals. Our Streets helps alleviate that obstacle by providing 1,000 meals every day to more than 10 shelters, service providers, and community partners in the Portland area for residents who are housing or food insecure.
Since our origin in 2020, Our Streets has provided more than 600,000 meals to community members in need.
A message of gratitude from an employee of a shelter Our Streets serves: "I just wanted to say thanks for the dinners you're providing to our shelter. We only have a half-kitchen in a repurposed mailroom (the entire shelter is in a repurposed county office building), and cooking can be a challenge especially when almost all of our food is from donations. The teriyaki chicken we had last night was a big hit. Thanks again, y'all are awesome."
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Our Streets is a social justice nonprofit that originated in 2020 at the height of the Black Lives Matter movement and the COVID-19 pandemic. From the beginning we have been dedicated to creating equity within Portland by fulfilling needs found within local underserved communities.
The first $1,000 will be matched by Energy 350.
