Good Stuff In TEC: Oregon

Feeding the hungry out of Grace Episcopal Astoria.

Oregon's food distribution system for the hungry is a marvel. It begins at a giant warehouse in Portland, where food retailers such as Safeway and Fred Meyer bring product. Then it moves to junctions such as the regional food warehouse operated by Clatsop Community Action. Finally it goes to places such as Grace Episcopal and Manna House, where the public may pick up nutrition. Talk to someone who meets the public at one of these places and they will tell you about the faces of the hungry and of how it comes in all configurations of family or single people.
