Many families in need of food assistance will have better access thanks to a recent decision by the Portland Children’s Levy (PCL) Allocation Committee. The committee voted to fund Oregon Food Bank’s School Pantry Program activities within the city of Portland in the amount of $1.282 million over three years. The committee’s decision was supported unanimously by the Portland City Council today, which votes on PCL funding recommendations. Seven school pantries are located in the city of Portland, with plans for 11 more within the next three years.
