FREE Food & Clothing Assistance for Over 90 Years!

Since 1923, the Portland Police Bureau Sunshine Division has been providing food and clothing relief to Portland families and individuals in need. Whether due to the loss of a job, domestic crime, illness, or victims of fire or disaster, the Sunshine Division has built a 91-year legacy of mobilizing quickly and efficiently to assist distressed Portlanders.

We offer food assistance six days a week at our warehouse as well as 24/7 through our partnership with the Portland Police Bureau who store food boxes at each police precinct that can be dispatched to those in need at any time. We also provide no-cost, bulk food and food boxes to 15+ local hunger relief non-profits serving Clark, Clackamas, Washington, and Multnomah counties.  In addition to food relief, we offer new and gently-used clothing in our on-site clothing room and fund new school clothes for low income children through our Izzy’s Kid’s program which pairs a Portland police officer with a child for a one-on-one shopping experience.

If you need help with food or clothing,
please call: 503-823-2102 or click here for more information.
