Union Gospel Mission is serving 900 Easter meals this week to help those experiencing homelessness.
300 meals will be handed out downtown Sunday, April 17 at 10am at 15 NW Third Avenue Portland.
The remaining 600 meals are being delivered this week by the Search + Rescue mobile outreach that visits camps through the metro area.
The meals include ham, Au Gratin potatoes, green beans with bacon and onions, a dinner roll, tropical fruit salad, and dessert to go. To make this happen the kitchen crew will use about 230 lbs. each of ham and scalloped potatoes.
“I’m so thankful in this Easter season that our faithful donors have made it possible for us to once again share a meal and the message of hope with our guests who are hungry and hurting,” said Lori Food Service Director at UGM.
The Mission also prepared 250 Easter food baskets for families who are housed but are unable to provide an Easter brunch for their families.
