...because no one should go hungry.
 
Everyone Needs to Eat Food Drive
January 8 through Feb 10
 
We are delighted to be partnering with the Oregon Food Bank during the run of I Love to Eat. Between January 8 and February 10, 2013, bring your non-perishable items to the collection bin in the Portland Center Stage lobby, located at 128 NW 11th Avenue.
 

 
535,000 Oregonians live below the poverty line and an estimated 260,000 people a month ate meals from Oregon Food Bank emergency food boxes during the past year. Of those, almost 86,000 were children. Please join PCS and the Oregon Food Bank in their efforts to provide food to families in need by bringing in your food donation.
 
Donate in the lobby of the Gerding Theater at the Armory any time during open hours, Tuesday–Friday 10:00 a.m. to 8:00pm, Saturday noon to 8:00pm, and Sunday noon to 5:30pm.

Oregon Food Bank needs these nutritious foods:
  • canned meats (i.e. tuna, chicken, salmon)
  • canned and boxed meals (i.e. soup, chili, stew, macaroni and cheese)
  • peanut butter and other nut butters
  • canned or dried beans and peas (i.e. black, pinto, lentils)
  • pasta, rice and cereal
  • canned fruits and vegetables
  • 100% fruit or vegetable juice (canned, plastic or boxed)
  • cooking oil
  • shelf‐stable milk
  • please consider donating healthy, low‐fat and low‐sugar products
To ensure food safety, Oregon Food Bank cannot use:
  • rusty or unlabeled cans
  • perishable items
  • homemade items
  • noncommercial canned or packaged items
  • alcoholic beverages, mixes or soda
  • open or used items
PLEASE NOTE: If you donate glass products, please box or bag them separately and label the box or bag "GLASS" on all sides.

Glad to read about the PCS food drive to benefit the Oregon Food Bank during the run of “I Love to Eat!” The fact that 260 K people received food boxes from the OFB in 2013 put the passion for exotic and/or expensive vittles into perspective. The old “eat to live, rather than live to eat” mantra still makes sense…..
