The Southeast Portland Food Project
Food Donation Pick Up
Saturday, February 9, 2013

The Southeast Portland Food Project (TSPFP) collects donated food the second Saturday of every even month (February, April, June, August, October, December). There is a donation pick up next month. Let’s collect and transport this food by bike.

TransportLand are not the organizers, but we will be there. For more information, contact The Southeast Portland Food Project.

A little background on our promotion of this volunteer event:

In our work with The Oregon Food Bank (OFB), the idea of volunteers on cargo bikes has come up many times as a solution to (a) a volunteer need within the OFB system, (b) a desire to move beyond reliance on automobiles for transport, and (c) a need for new volunteers, especially younger adults.

Our plan with The Oregon Food Bank is still in creation. Dean Albany, the OFB man behind our partnership, connected us with The Southeast Portland Food Project as a way to actualize volunteer cargo bike delivery of donated food. TSPFP strives to build a stronger community while providing necessary food to hungry neighbors. Awesome.

One of the goals of TransportLand is to be a conduit for eager volunteers with cargo carrying bikes, and organizations with cargo carrying needs. Join us and create another line of connection in the Portland community web.

Bring your bike, and bring a friend.

The Oregon Food Bank

For a number of years, my sons had a canned food drive for their birthdays instead of presents. After the party, we would bike on down to the Oregon Food Bank. The staff at The Oregon Food Bank did a great job of making my sons feel good about their actions. I have always appreciated the work done here.

On August 2, 2012, I biked my way down to The Oregon Food Bank again, but this time it was for something different. (more…)
