Our Food Pantry is the largest food pantry program on Portland’s west side, serving over 1,400 individuals each month to meet this most basic of needs. Our healthy ingredients, provided by our generous supporters, provide you the means to focus on other necessities in your life, such as finding gainful employment to pay the rent or improving careers for long-term advancement.
If you currently receive food assistance from TANF, LIEAP, food stamps or other government programs, the Neighborhood House Food Pantry is here to help!
Families may receive two food boxes per month. A food box contains healthful food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (as available) and is intended to supply families with ingredients for 3-5 days. Thanks to our generous community, most boxes have enough for 5-8 days.
Food boxes include a mix of perishable and non-perishable items. Additionally, we often have extra donated baked goods, which may be accessed at any time during our regular business hours (please bring your own shopping bags).
Food Pantry Donations
The Food Pantry operates without public funding, relying solely on community support. Your donations make a difference in your neighbors’ lives every day. Please bring any food donations to our Food Pantry in the heart of Multnomah Village. We accept produce and non-perishable items, but we cannot take refrigerated or frozen items from private individuals. Please note that our volunteers have to check the sell-by date on each and every item donated, so donations of flats or cases save time and are greatly appreciated!
