The best donation to Food Not Bombs is food that would otherwise go to waste. If you work in a restaurant or a store, if you're are a farmer and has extra food that otherwise will go to waste, feel free to contact us. Our kitchen currently accepts food that is vegan and organic. We accept expired food, if the expiration date is recent.
We also accept donations of kitchen appliances, used plastic and glass containers with lids, bikes or bike trailers and usb rechargeable lights.
Feel free to bring donations to our Kitchen - 4311SE37th Ave Portland OR, at the time of the prep, every Saturday between 11-3pm. You can also donate during the servings.
A donation of your time is also a great gift to us! We always need people to document what we do in photos and videos, help out with graphic design and social media, seek out donations and build relationships in the community, tune up our bikes and trailers, clean and sort things in our kitchen, make food, help out with bike transport and help serve the meal. We've got a sign-up sheet to cover volunteer duties, but there is always more than needs to be done in order to make our servings a reality.
Last but not least, we do use money for things we cannot get donated, even though that is not our first go-to. Feel free to bring cash to our servings or kitchen prep, or PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org (make sure to check the "Friends and Family" option.
