On Monday, March 30th, volunteers and staff delivered and staged food from our warehouse in the reception area of Rosenbaum Plaza, an 80-unit apartment building in downtown Portland for low-income and disabled residents. Most of the residents we served are not able to get to the Pantry on their own, nor would they be able to transport any meaningful supply of food back to their homes. During this event, we helped a number of residents get the food up and into their apartments.
This video provides a little more context of our first Portable Pantry than the slide-show at the bottom of the blog. After volunteers set up the food, they assisted in checking-in residents and helped them with food selection.
