In an effort to help the various organizations providing meals and operating food pantries, the City of Beaverton has opened a food donation center in partnership with Village Church.
The Regional Food Donation Center will serve as a central site for area food donations and will be located at Village Church at 330 SW Murray Boulevard.
Operations began Monday, May 4 and will continue through at least the end of May. Donations can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Food items being accepted include non-perishables in family-size packaging, including dried beans, rice, spaghetti and egg noodles, cereal, canned fruit and vegetables, canned fish or chicken, boxed macaroni and cheese, juice in plastic bottles, peanut butter and vegetable oil.
Donated items should be within the “best by” dates specified on each label. Open packages and homemade food will not be accepted. A full listing of food items and additional information is available at www.BeavertonOregon.gov/donationscenter.
