Serving Our Community

                      A shopping pantry with a mission to

“Help our hungry neighbors who are in need of food”.

OVERVIEW:

We work in partnership with Care-To-Share of Beaverton to provide a shopping pantry that will meet a family’s needs. Please call Care-To-Share at 503-591-9025 Monday thru Friday 9 am to 2 pm to make an appointment.

We accept walk-in clients, but there’s less waiting with an appointment. Shopping includes non-perishable foods and a variety of fresh, nutritious food including milk and fresh vegetables.

During the COVID-19 closure, we will meet you at the door and take your order based on the size of your family. The order will be filled and brought to you to load into your car. We are doing this with social distance and minimal contact.

PANTRY HOURS:                                   

Monday-2:00 to 4:00 pm                     

Wednesday-9:00 to 11:00 am                

Saturday-10:00 am to 2:00 pm              

Vets Shopping 10:00 am-3rd Thurs.

For inquiries, or if you would like to volunteer email the food pantry directly at: mhccfoodpantry@gmail.com

BACKGROUND:

The pantry was started in 2005 by the Church Elders as a free food program to help our neighbors with the Oregon Food Bank as an agency partner. The majority of the 7,000 people we served last year are referred to us by Care-To-Share. We have grown to a core of 70 dedicated volunteers who worked over 3,000 hours last year – with no paid staff.

AGENCY PARTNERS AND DONORS:

25 Partner Agency and Advocates including New Seasons, Franz Bread, Alpenrose, Scouts food drives and “Friends of the Pantry” are generous supporters.

We have current grant support from Safeway/Albertsons Foundation, the National Benevolent Association (part of the Christian Church Disciples of Christ national organization) and City of Beaverton Social Services Committee.

Our Pantry sincerely appreciates the generous donations and would not be able to operate without them.

Food and cash donations can be sent to

Who is my neighbor? Join us virtually on June 8th, as Raiza shares stories and answers questions about our neighbors arriving at the southwest US border. Through her work in Texas with Children’s Disaster Services she has witnessed how intentional play can provide hope and an oasis for children and their families.

COVID has left us empty and alone without energy to respond. I hear you. And I’m not asking to respond with action today. I’m asking to care, to know, and to listen so that when the time comes you can act and know why you are acting. Come with curiosity as we learn more about our neighbors and the human impact that policies are having.

When: Tuesday, June 8th 2021

Time: 6:30 pm – 8:00pm

Where: Virtually on Zoom

What: Sharing Hope and Community at the Border
