Meal resources for families

This is a long post showing meal resources in Multnomah County (and beyond). We start with school districts and then move to community orgranizations and restaurants we know of that are helping the community. Please let us know if you need further assistance.

Multnomah County School Districts

Multnomah County school districts continue to provide meal assistance during comprehensive distance education. The SUN Service System also has information on accessing food during COVID-19 closures.

We have done our best to provide current information. Please confirm meal availability through the links shared below.
