Food for Families was formed by high school students in the Centennial School District in Portland, Oregon in order to alleviate the issue of hunger within the community. Operated out of a retired school bus, Food for Families is open every other Wednesday to serve the community. On average, over 80 families attend and over 3,000 pounds of food is given out.

Friends of the Children - Klamath Basin is a chapter of a national non-profit that is breaking the cycle of generational poverty by giving children facing the highest risks the ability to create a new story. We do this by providing the most vulnerable children with a long-term, salaried, professional mentor, who we call a "Friend," from kindergarten through high school graduation, 12-1/2 years - no matter what!
