It is that time of year when so many of us get into the hustle and bustle of preparing for the holiday season. It is so easy for us to get so wrapped into that mindset that we often forget about those in our community that do not have the resources that many of us do to be able to fully enjoy the holidays. We have long been supporters of our local Oregon Food Bank and we are strong believers in their mission that no one should ever go hungry.
The Oregon Food Bank is actually our nation’s first state food bank and they do a wonderful job in reaching out to over 900,000 mouths in the whole state of Oregon and SW Washington. We invite customers every month to join us in our monthly Oregon Food Bank shift at their Beaverton facility, but not everyone is able to make it to those evening shifts.
We are giving our customers an opportunity to help support so many in our community that struggle to provide food for themselves and their families. We will be collecting non-perishable food and dollar donations to support the Oregon Food Bank. Our Baristas will be competing in a friendly competition to see who can ask for the most donations. Support your favorite Lionheart Coffee Barista by placing your donations into their personal box in front of our bar. We have an overall store goal of seeing if we can reach 300lbs of food to donate to the food bank. We ask for your support and appreciate anything you are able to contribute.
