Support Lift UP to End Food Insecurity in Portland

Every day, our neighbors in Northwest and Downtown Portland struggle to put food on the table. Food insecurity is a complex problem with many root causes, including poverty, racism, and lack of access to affordable housing.

Your generous donation—whether monetary or donated time—plays a crucial role in providing essential food access to the Downtown and Northwest Portland community.   Together, we can strive to end food insecurity in our community.

Whether you're an individual, business, or organization, your financial contribution, donated time, or partnership helps Lift UP increase food security for our neighbors and foster a more just and equitable food system. 

  • Donate funds through a one-time gift, becoming a sustaining member, or leaving a legacy gift.

  • Volunteer your time.

  • Partner with us to provide continued resources.

  • Donate food.

There are many ways to support Lift UP:

Give a One-Time Gift

All donations big or small help increase food security in our community. Your financial contribution of just $5 equals 15 healthy and nutritious meals for your neighbors in need. Think of how many of your neighbors you could help us feed with a contribution of $25, $50, or even $100!

Become a Sustaining Member

Join our monthly giving circle and contribute as little as $5 a month. This recurring donation provides annual support for your neighbors facing food insecurity. Your donation allows us to provide reliable support and thereby strengthens our mission at Lift UP of feeding the community.
