Fork It Over Food Donation Program
"Fork it Over!" is a Metro food donation program that seeks to reduce hunger and waste in the Portland, Oregon Region by coordinating organizations that have food to donate with food rescue agencies, like the Sunshine Pantry, Rock Creek Church, Westside Food Brigade and the Holy Trinity Pantry here in Beaverton.
Food rescue agencies maintain well-defined protocols for ensuring the safe and efficient collection and distribution of donated food. Donation is safe, simple and the right thing to do.
The Beaverton School District has joined the many area businesses that have committed to reducing waste and fighting hunger. The cafeterias donate to these rescue agencies weekly with the help of parent volunteers.
