Sisters of the Road


A nonprofit Cafe in Portland's Old Town neighborhood, SotR seeks to build authentic relationships and alleviate the hunger of isolation in an atmosphere of nonviolence and “gentle personalism” that nurtures the whole individual.

Bottom Line for Portland

SotR provides an average of 230 nutritious meals made with fresh produce and whole grains each day to people experiencing homelessness and poverty in exchange for $1.50 cash, food stamps or dignified barter work in the Sisters Cafe.

“Thank you! I’ve not experienced more humane and healthy treatment since being homeless. My daughter and I both enjoyed the best food in weeks!…I wish I could live on a farm helping grow these awesome veggies! I’m pregnant, so the berries and greens were a treat. Keep up the good work! Never grow weary!” —Sisters community member
