About The People’s Pantry at MCCP
The People’s Pantry (a ministry of the Metropolitan Community Church of Portland) is a partner agency with the Oregon Food Bank. Through this partnership The Peoples Pantry is able to offer the community a free “shopping style” food pantry to anyone in need. We do this each Tuesday from 12-4 pm. Other days we offer prepacked emergency and cooking bags for those who are hungry or in need.
Although our partnership with the Oregon Food Bank has greatly leveraged our purchasing power, we are always in need of funding to help purchase food and supplies to restock the People’s Pantry shelves. All financial donations will go to the purchase of food and supplies to support the People’s Pantry.

Since beginning our shopping style pantry we have averaged 246 visits a month, serving 511 family members. On average the pantry has been distributing 10,976 pounds of food each month. That’s nearly 5 1/2 tons of food every month! This community feeding program is made possible with God’s blessing, our partnership with the Oregon Food Bank, the dedication of our volunteer staff and of course, your generosity.
