High Holy Days Food Drive
This year, CBI’s High Holy Days Food Drive is focusing on raising cash, rather than food, for Sunshine Pantry and Lift Urban Portland. Bulk-buying and long-term relationships with generous members of the food industry mean that these agencies can stretch a dollar considerably further than the average consumer.
An average grocery bag costs 23 dollars for 16 pounds. Through Sunshine Pantry and Lift Urban Portland:
18 dollars can purchase 31.18 pounds of food
36 dollars can purchase 63.72 pounds
54 dollars can purchase 95.58 pounds
72 dollars can purchase 127.44 pounds
108 dollars can purchase 191.16 pounds
To donate, mail or drop off a check to 1972 NW Flanders Street, Portland, OR 97209 or call 503-222-1069.
You can also donate online: Click here to fill out your donation information. Make sure to choose "High Holy Days Food Drive" near the bottom of the "Choose a Fund" dropdown list.
If you and your families find the giving of food to be a more meaningful experience, please do so! Good stewardship counts here, too: Buy and donate what the programs need. Sunshine Pantry and Lift Urban Portland have lists posted on their websites of most-needed items. To give food, items can be dropped off in food barrels in the main office or in the Temple.
The CBI High Holy Days Food Drive continues through October 4.
