To provide food and clothing assistance to our culturally and racially diverse Portland metro neighbors while working to develop community solutions to food insecurity. This mission is achieved through direct assistance, state and local advocacy, job training and a mobile food pantry.
Bottom Line for Portland
With the support of 125 volunteers donating 1,200 hours per month, NEFP distributed 900,000 pounds of food and 50,000 clothing articles to more than 9,000 households last year. Its job-training program empowers individuals to seek success and its clients’ stories inspire advocacy.
“When I come here, I feel like I am at home with my family. Many of us who come here do not have regular access to fresh fruit or vegetables; this place changes that. My family never leaves hungry.”
—Terry Scott, client
All G!G donors to NEFP will receive a coupon for a free medium coffee from Miss Zumstein Bakery and Coffee Shop on Northeast 42nd Avenue.
