In an unprecedented effort associated with its annual fall fundraiser, All Classical Portland will partner with Olson & Jones Construction and the Oregon Food Bank to help provide 30,000 meals to those in need.
More than 644,000 Oregonians are food insecure, and of those about 223,480 are children.
The station provides music around the clock that nourishes heart and soul, and through this special collaboration during Hunger Action Month, All Classical Portland will also help nourish bodies.
Throughout September, each donation made to All Classical Portland will trigger a third-party donation from Olson & Jones Construction directly to the Oregon Food Bank, which will provide six meals to individuals and families in need. The goal is to receive at least 5,000 donations which will in turn feed 30,000 people.
In line with All Classical Portland’s mission to build and sustain culturally vibrant communities, the Oregon Food Bank’s food distribution programs also provide social contact and promote community cohesiveness, both of which are critical components in building individual and neighborhood resiliency. Its regional pantries help 1 in 5 households facing hunger in the region.
