Oregon Food Bank partners with Gladstone Food Pantry
The Food Pantry at Gladstone High School is the 25th school-based food pantry to partner with the Oregon Food Bank.
The partnership brings weekly deliveries of food to Gladstone at no cost to the school district. This will enable the Food Pantry to provide a broad range of foods beyond canned goods and non-perishables, including meats, produce, frozen items, and dairy products.
“Expanding the food pantry allows us to provide better nutrition to kids so they can focus on learning instead of hunger,” said Food Pantry Coordinator Lennie Bjornsen.
The food pantry is open to any family in need on Thursdays from 3 to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon. It is located behind Gladstone High School off Nelson Lane. [Look for the green sign, then follow the fire lane]
Families are invited to visit once a week to choose a 3-5 day supply of food. Bring your own reusable grocery bags if possible.
