Gladstone Food Pantry

NOVEMBER CLOSURE: We are sad to announce that the Gladstone Food Pantry’s Thursday Food Distribution is cancelled for the month of November. We are taking this time to explore enhanced COVID safety procedures for the safety of our volunteers and clients.

If you are in need of food assistance, our friends at Good Roots Food Bank and Garden (1908 SE Courtney Rd) are open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to Noon. We will keep you all updated as we prepare for reopening.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, the Gladstone Food Pantry has been providing pre-packed food boxes for drive-through pickup on Nelson Lane.

Hours:  Thursdays, 3:30-5:30 p.m.
Location:  Enter Nelson Lane from Portland Ave. Stop 2 blocks up the hill for food box loading.
Phone: 503-496-3947
For more information, to donate, or to volunteer: contact Pantry Manager Reyna Welliver at rwelliver@nwfs.org
