Cultural Food Justice – Thanksgiving
Multnomah County has listened to the needs of our Pacific Islander communities and has given Living Islands a Cultural Food Justice grant. We will use this grant to supply elders, handicapped, and people with significant risks for Covid-19 with cultural-specific foods during Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Today we had the first of two Cultural Food Justice events and handed out Pig, Chicken, Parrot Fish, Taro Root and Leaves, Ginger, Star Fruit, et. al.
In all, we supplied more than 70+ food boxes, with more than 1000 Lb of Pig, 200 Chickens, and more than 100 Fish to five different Pacific Islander communities.
The next event will be on December 23rd. Be sure to sign up for our mail list to be notified when we have more information.
We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who helped, Multnomah County of course, as well as Oregon Valley Farm, Uwajimaya, Cash & Carry smart food services, CareOregon, Lake Oswego Blueprint, and Lake Oswego Starbucks.
