Wayside Mobile Food Pantries


Contact Information
Wayside Food Programs delivers fresh produce, meat, dairy, bread, and nonperishable items every month into four Portland Housing Authority (PHA) sites. Each household receives ingredients to make at least 12 meals per person. The groceries enable individuals and families to prepare their own meals and support families working together to improve eating habits.  Each month, 575 Portland Housing Authority neighborhood residents participate. Mobile Food Pantries are collaborations between Wayside, Portland Housing Authority (PHA), and Portland Community Policing.
