Westside Food Brigade

The Journey!

Food Brigade began as a small group of people from Westside Community Church. Their only mission was to serve wherever God needed them. They began meeting on Saturday mornings to prepare sandwiches and sack lunches to distribute to the homeless in downtown Portland.

Not to long after, in late November of 2008, Aloha High School notified Westside of a great need. They noticed that there were many homeless high school students that attended the school, who were part of the weekly meal plan but had no food to eat during the weekends.

It was then that the Westside Food Brigade really saw the needs of our local kids & their families and wanted to help out. The focus moved from Portland to the Westside Farmington Campus to be as close to Aloha High School as possible.

In 2013, we joined the Oregon Food bank and became a partner agency and an emergency food box (EFB) pantry. That allowed Food Brigade to buy food at very low cost from the Oregon Food Bank and enabled us to help more people in the community than ever before. Aside from the OFB, Grocery Outlet has been one of the main contributors along with Safeway, Albertson’s, Einstein Brothers Bagels, and Monkey’s Subs. They all make donations to the food pantry.

In 2018, we became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Westside Food Brigade serves between 85 and 105 families per week. We are open on Saturday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30. The journey is continuing to the next level.

We pick up our weekly food order on Saturday morning from the Food bank and fill our truck from front to back and give it away every week. We also make trips on Thursdays and Friday to pick up fresh produce and dairy items.

Thanks to the generous financial donations of many of our donors, volunteers and those who have a passion for helping hurting people.

Habitat works in partnership with low-income families, volunteers, donors, and organizations to receive donated materials, volunteer labor and generous financial gifts. Qualifying families purchase habitat homes by contributing 500 hours of “Sweat Equity” building Habitat homes and a down payment. They receive a zero-percent interest rate mortgage (0% APR) and monthly payments structured to their income. Mortgage payments from Habitat homes go into a fund which is then recycled back in to the community building more Habitat homes.
