Clay Street Table

We share our plate during this month of June with Clay Street Table.  Their meals program and food pantry have become a major source of food for those experiencing poverty and homelessness in our southwest neighborhood of downtown Portland.

The roots of this program date back 30 years, to a small group of women from St. Stephen’s Episcopal Parish who made sandwiches for those living on the street.  Today, that project has developed into an established organization with more than 100 volunteers drawn from the parish and other churches, schools, colleges, civic groups, and the community they serve.
