Formerly Fish Emergency Services: We are moving in April to 3500 NE 82nd (corner of NE Fremont). New Wednesday evening hours coming soon!


In the fall of 2014 we were asked to gather personal stories from visitors to our pantry to bring with us to the Oregon Legislative Action Day, in order to raise awareness of hunger in our community. We asked,

" What does hunger mean to you?"

The following were some of the responses we received.

"Hunger is a child licking the pages of a a magazine for the taste of cake."

"Hunger is a bad feeling...after 5 days of not eating the pain goes away and you have only a feeling of emptiness"
