My Bestie of 27 years is the director of Taste and See Local, an outlet of the Oregon Food Bank in Forest Grove, Oregon. They have had a tough year ramping up from about 35 families weekly to 125+. They’ve also started a homeless meal delivery service (this is a fancy way of saying my friend and her boys drive around in her Prius dropping off provisions).
This has been an epically challenging year for many charitable organizations. Just the scaling up to meet demand has been an enormous undertaking. A big part of this scale-up is having a walk in fridge-freezer combo.
The Food Bank is currently trying to recoup $19,000 from a bad actor who is not to be named on this thread, please. Even if -and downton abbey bangor cinema a big if- they recover those funds, that isn’t enough for the equipment they need. The current estimate is $38,000 for the walk-in they need.
It’s easy to give! Just text “give *amount” to 844.951.2196

Now, look at this beautiful woman and her labor of love. The last nine months have left her feeling discouraged and like she let everyone down when the truth is that she’s supporting soooooo many. Help me bless her socks off.
