The Tigard Friends Food Pantry has added a food barrel to collect donations for distribution at the Dec. 19 drive-thru Food Pantry. The barrel is located at Primo Espresso coffee, 15981 SW Hall Boulevard, on the corner of Durham Road. The pantry is in need of canned vegetables, fruit, soup, meats, cereal, pasta and sauce, and peanut butter. Primo is open daily from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the barrel is inside the front door.
The November pantry provided bags of food stuff to almost 100 families, and over nearly 500 people, which is double the normal pantry days pre-COVID.
Anyone needing help with food is invited to come to the next Food Pantry on Dec. 19, please wear a mask. The Tigard Friends Food Pantry is located at 15800 SW Hall Boulevard, and is open from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., but it is suggested to get there in the first hour.
