Portland’s City Hall Atrium will be a beehive of activity as over 50 employees from City of Portland offices and bureaus across the city, including Mayor Charlie Hales and Commissioner Dan Saltzman, will volunteer their time to repackage and label health bars for the Oregon Food Bank. The repackaged bars will then be distributed to hundreds of food pantries serving low-income residents.
The Oregon Food Bank believes that hunger is solved by everyone working together. This event, coinciding with a two-week food drive going on now through March 11 at Portland City Hall and the Portland Building, is designed to increase hunger awareness and inspire individuals to help.
“Thousands of Portland residents face hunger every day,” said City Commissioner Dan Saltzman. “Around this time of year, the bounty of holiday donations begins to dwindle and food pantries look to fortify their shelves. We at the City want to do our part.”
WHEN: Friday, March 7, 2014, 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
WHERE: Portland City Hall, 1221 SW 4th Ave, Ground Floor Atrium
