Description

Deliver Groceries to Your Neighbors Facing Hunger with Lift Urban Portland

Volunteer with Lift Urban Portland, an organization that seeks to reduce hunger and improve the lives of ​low-income residents ​of Northwest and Downtown Portland. We are expanding rapidly to serve the needs of our growing community and we need your help! 

Description of Role

Does delivering food pique your interest? Are you at least 21 years of age? Do you enjoy driving? Would you like to help your neighbors facing hunger access healthy food? We are expanding our team of dedicated and compassionate volunteer drivers to deliver fresh produce and pantry items to our neighbors in Northwest and Downtown Portland who experience barriers to leaving their homes. 

Quote from Community Member Impacted by the Delivery Program

“Protein and many staples have been hard to come by with how high rent alone is; Lift Urban Portland has enabled me to have healthy, stable meals on a monthly basis. Without their help, I would have to return to specific days of the week where I fast just to stay alive, like I used to do before Lift Urban Portland helped me out. Thank you guys, everything you do for the community revitalizes my faith and hope in people as a whole.”

Resident, Fountain Place
