At Rose Haven we served 17,000 meals in 2015, and are on track to serve more than 18,000 in 2016. Most of our food comes from local businesses, and it can be challenging for staff to juggle these daily pick-ups, and they generally occur in the morning before the start of the work day.
We can always use help with pick-up and delivery of daily food donations, and have a few options for pickup and delivery to Rose Haven, if you are interested and have a vehicle.
Wednesday Mornings: Pickup food from Elephant's Deli in Lake Oswego (Kruse Way) and/or Elephants Deli on Corbett. This one is pretty easy because the elephants staff prepare everything for you and you just have to pick up the food and deliver it to Rose Haven.
Wednesday Mornings: Pickup soup from Prasad 925 NW Davis St. This one is also easy because the staff prepare everything for you and you just have to pick up the soup and deliver it to Rose Haven.
Thursday Mornings: "Glean" items nearing expiration from New Seasons Slabtown location (this you would have to train on, as you have to empty the designated fridge into cartons yourself and make sure you leave behind things we can't use or are already expired, then deliver the food to Rose Haven.
Friday Mornings: Pickup food from Elephants Deli on Corbett. This one is easy because the elephants staff prepare everything for you and you just have to pick up the food and deliver it to Rose Haven.
