Where to find a food box in Portland, Gresham, Happy Valley
As the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed the demand for food to new heights, a regional nonprofit organization has created a new program to spread hope.
The Salvation Army's Operation Share Hope works alongside several partners to pass out 1,500 food boxes weekly in a drive-through format.
"We're thankful for our local partners who have come alongside us to make this possible," said Major Bob Lloyd, The Salvation Army Portland Metro Coordinator.
The Salvation Army will pass out the boxes from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at three locations to serve as many people as possible.
Operation Share Hope will continue until further notice. The program is possible thanks to support from Lloyd Center, East Hill Church, Clackamas Town Center, Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, Franz Family Bakery, Oregon Food Bank, Oregon State Police, Sysco, Alliance Packaging, City of Happy Valley, Trailblazer Foods, Gresham Police Department, International Paper, Victory Outreach, Exceed Enterprises, and Bob's Cold Storage.
