Emergency Food


Our staff and conference volunteers understand that many households are struggling. We know many households are just one paycheck from being homeless, or one unexpected emergency away from being forced to choose between food and shelter. We are here to help those in need.

Our Emergency Services program is professionally staffed along with assistance from volunteers from the St. Louise Conference. The staff and conference volunteers answer incoming phone calls and assist walk-in clients from households across the Metro region seeking help.

Our pantry is capable of supplying a 3-5 day supply of healthy, well-balanced food. Our staff will assist families in getting connected to food stamp benefits, WIC and senior nutrition programs.

Our offices are open between the hours of 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM Monday thru Friday. Our emergency assistance office is located at 5120 S.E. Milwaukie Ave. Portland, OR., Map Tel: 503-235-8431.

Due to the high numbers of phone calls and walk-in clients, please be patient with our staff and volunteers. They will be serveing you with the same caring attention.
