community partners, and neighbors of all ages
for your comittment and generous support of the
SW HOPE: Feed the Hungry campaign to benefit
Neighborhood House's Emergency Food Box Program.


What is SW HOPE: Feed the Hungry? 

Since 2006, each spring Southwest Portland Faith Organizations and Community Partners work together to meet the needs of hungry people in Southwest Portland.    

What is the Need?

  • Recent reductions in SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program) benefits are seriously weakening the national safety net for millions of vulnerable low-income Americans--including 819,000 Oregonians.  

  • Neighborhood House operates the largest food pantry on Portland's west side, currently providing food boxes to approximately 500 families (or 1200 - 1500 individuals) each month, up from 270 before the recession hit.


Your donation is more important than ever.
