Thanks to our partner, BedMart, this summer the community will be reminded that “Hunger Doesn’t Vacation.” Thousands of local kids who receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch at their schools during the school year find themselves without two of their three meals a day during the summer months.
As part of the campaign, the Sunshine Division will be delivering 1000 summer food boxes to homes on Saturday, June 21nd at 9 a.m. to Portland-area families with school age children.
We are looking for volunteers who want to help with the loading of boxes at the Sunshine Division Warehouse and North Precinct from roughly 8:30am-11am or volunteers to personally deliver the boxes to homes as “drivers” on that morning beginning at 9am that morning from both locations. Drivers can take as little or as many boxes as they want. Those interested in helping at North precinct should email Barbara Barbara.Erspamer@portlandoregon.gov directly and those interested in helping at the Sunshine warehouse should email Kris Padden firstname.lastname@example.org.
