ALLEN TEMPLE FOOD BANK

NE Site for Oregon Food Bank to provide food for individuals and families who are struggling and hungry.  Served 1,400 individuals last year including children, families, seniors, veterans and disabled. The center is open 15 days per month and serve families between NE Broadway/Ainsworth to NE 42nd/N. Killingsworth.  We are the only food bank and emergency clothing site offering this many hours of service to our community.  The Food Bank operates from the emergency services building on our property because it is so vitally important to the families we serve, as is offering a consistent location for services. With 16.1% of all Oregonians experiencing food insecurity (being without access to sufficient, affordable, nutritious food) the loss of an accessible food bank in our community would directly impact our neighbors and families.

We also offer a clothing closet for individuals, families and neighbors. Our church members provide over 80 hours of service monthly.
