Welcome to Food Not Bombs PDX!

We are the Portland, Oregon chapter of Food Not Bombs, a world-wide, all-volunteer movement working to divert food from capitalism's vast waste streams, and share it freely in a spirit of mutual aid. We promote and embody sustainable practices throughout our operation. Our meals and pickups are done using bikes and trailers, and we discourage single use products. Our aim is to show people how a community can come together to do things outside the capitalistic system.

All Are Welcome

We believe that barriers to access for essential needs should be as low as possible, so we have no arbitrary restrictions (such as residency, ID, or income requirements) on who can participate. Everyone is welcome at all of our food-sharing events, subject to our code of conduct.

Current Events

Food Giveaway and Vegan Potluck

What: Free produce, bread, tofu, and other vegan grocery items donated by local businesses, retrieved and delivered by bike by volunteers. On Saturdays only we also have a vegan potluck meal prepared by anyone who wants to contribute a dish.

When: Updated Time for December - January. Every Wednesday and Saturday from 4:30 - 6:30 PM.

Where: Buckman Elementary School on the south playground, or look for us at the covered basketball court on the upper level if it's raining.

How: Bring your own grocery bags, containers, utensils, plates, etc., as containers are limited. Leave no trace!

Produce Porch

What: Free produce (sometimes bread and other food items) being discarded by local businesses, retrieved and delivered by bike.

When: Every Tuesday at 1 PM and Friday at 11 AM.

Where: 1616 SE 32nd Place, just south of Hawthorne.

How: Food is dropped off by volunteers around the times above at a curbside table. People can collect food any time, on a first come, first served basis. The porch is not monitored, so we are not able to give updates on what's left. Get there early for the best selection!
