St. Barnabas puts on a Community Dinner the second Saturday of every month. We average around 50-60 guests each month with a tasty, healthy meal, plus food and personal care bags for anyone who wants one. These help to ensure that those on food stamps will have enough food to get to the end of the month.
St. Barnabas is a church partner of Portland Rescue Mission. We regularly volunteer to serve meals at their locations. This includes serving dinners for the homeless at their downtown Burnside kitchen and cooking for displaced women and children at their Shepherd’s Door location. Contact Aubin Spice to join our volunteer team. All are welcome: young and old, experienced volunteers and those not so experienced!
St. Barnabas is also partnered with Neighborhood House. We collect food for their Emergency Food Boxes, we pledge yearly to meet the SW HOPE community food drive goals, and we are currently working towards helping their Head Start program.
St. Barnabas has a long history of assisting West Women’s and Children’s Shelter. We help in whatever ways we’re needed, such as gathering everyday necessities for those whose lives have been uprooted and are beginning again.
