Cook Dinner for a Homeless Neighbor in Need


Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


1431 SE MLK Blvd.Portland, OR 97214


Organize a group of 4-8 people to prepare and serve a meal for 90 residents working towards acheiving housing. Our full service kitchen has all the pots, pans, serving utensils, and flatware that you'll need to prepare and serve the meal. We ask that the group donates the food to use for the meal (this can cost $150-200, but many Meal Provider groups seek in-kind donations from local stores or fundraise in their community to off-set costs). Dinner is served nightly at 7pm and groups are welcome to arrive as early as they need to begin preparing, or can even bring the meal ready to serve.

The Clark Center is a residential program at Transition Projects that helps provide resources and stability to adults experiencing homelessness. Individuals in the program are working with staff to address and overcome their barriers to housing. Our volunteers play a key role in their success by ensuring they have a warm, wholesome meal each night, as well as showing that our community is invested in their success.
