Making An Impact

  • Food box distribution: food boxes are distributed at no cost to the public on Tuesdays. We serve the food boxes via an outside drive through and pick up system of distribution. Each box provides food for approximately three to four days per household. People are also able to walk up to the pantry building to receive food. 
  • Serving other organizations: we provide food and food boxes to schools, community groups and other non-profit organizations by request. Between 2020 and 2023 C3 Food Pantry has supported Bybee Lakes Hope Center, Hacienda CDC, Sabin Elementary, Scott Elementary, Project Lemonade and Live Love Christmas at Mannahouse Church.
  • Urgent and emergency services: food, clothing, winter coats, backpacks, tents, blankets, medical supplies and hygiene packs. We have provided these services and hosted donation drives onsite to help the families impacted by the Oregon fires in September 2020, the Clara Vista apartment fire in January 2021, and Ukrainian refugees (in partnership with the Ukrainian Bible Church) in Portland in 2022. 
  • Seasonal services for low income households: Bouquets of flowers, Easter baskets, Mothers Day gift bags, Halloween candy bags and costumes, Thanksgiving meals, Christmas trees and Christmas decor.
  • Community events: MLK Day of Service event, Summer Community Block Party, Winter Holiday Cheer Event, Teacher Appreciation Day events at local elementary schools, and flowers donated directly to the community.
