Quality Food for All

Our mission is to reduce hunger and improve the lives of low-income residents in Northwest and Downtown Portland.

We fight food insecurity by offering a variety of food assistance services to residents in NW and Downtown Portland.

Together, We Can Help End Hunger in Portland

At Lift UP, we believe that everyone deserves healthy and nutritious food. We take great pride in ensuring our neighbors have access to the quality food they deserve. 


Inflation has increased food costs by 10% over the past year, and recent reductions in pandemic-era Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits have caused food insecurity to soar for many in our community. Usage of Emergency Food Closets in Adopted Buildings doubled over the past year.

With your support, we are feeding our community.

Help feed your food-insecure neighbors by donating food today.
