We provide emergency and urgent care:
- Three- to five-day (or more) supply of nutritious groceries (up to three times in a six-month period).
- More than a “food box,” our offering is an overflowing shopping cart full of groceries, frequently valued at $200 or more.
- Fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, bread and meat.
- Gently used clothing for the whole family.
- Weekly distribution of food, primarily fresh produce, grains and proteins, to the Sacajawea Head Start with our mobile pantry.
- Distribution of food to other EMO programs, including those using HIV Services, Sponsor Organized to Assist Refugees, and Russian Oregon Social Services.
- Through our Service Learners Initiative, we provide job training, skill building and exposure to nonprofit services to 15 to 20 people every year. We work with everyone from graduate school interns to developmentally disabled adults. Our graduates of the program have gone on to find employment in food services, social work and retail management.
We are open every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. As long as you arrive before 4 p.m., we will help you.
If you would like to use our services, please bring something with your name on it, such as an ID or a piece of mail. We would also like to see a similar document for the rest of your household. For children, you can bring insurance information, something from the school, or another document. No one is turned away for lack of ID. Please come prepared to wait. If you are not coming in vehicle, please bring extra bags, a cart or a large suitcase to get your food home. For questions, contact NEFP.
