SW HOPE: Feed the Hungry
Special thanks to the faith and business communities,
community partners, and neighbors of all ages
for your comittment and generous support of the
SW HOPE: Feed the Hungry campaign to benefit
Neighborhood House's Emergency Food Box Program.
What is SW HOPE: Feed the Hungry?
Since 2006, each spring Southwest Portland Faith Organizations and Community Partners work together to meet the needs of hungry people in Southwest Portland.
What is the Need?
Recent reductions in SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program) benefits are seriously weakening the national safety net for millions of vulnerable low-income Americans--including 819,000 Oregonians.
Neighborhood House operates the largest food pantry on Portland's west side, currently providing food boxes to approximately 500 families (or 1200 - 1500 individuals) each month, up from 270 before the recession hit.
Your donation is more important than ever.
