Family Meal PDX

Apr 16, 2020

Family Meal, a nonprofit founded in 2019 and 100% volunteer-run, provides financial relief to Oregon’s food service and agricultural workers in a medical debt crisis.

It is tough to imagine the profound impact that the recent restaurant closures across the state will have. The financial implications of lost wages for those living paycheck to paycheck will have lasting consequences. The production, processing and distribution businesses that serve restaurants will be deeply affected.

Family Meal’s capacity to issue grants is influenced by many factors, most significantly the number of applicants and the amount of money we have raised. We strive to issue the greatest number of grants, while sustaining our ability to reach as many individuals as possible.
