More Than a Meal 

Anyone who would like a meal is welcome to eat at Blanchet House of Hospitality. Free of charge. We offer delicious, well-balanced meals six days a week, three times a day in a safe, clean and friendly cafe. Our volunteers serve every guest a plate of food helping to nourish and restore dignity to the individual without judgment. There are no requirements to enjoy a meal at Blanchet House.

How Our Meal Service Works

  • Meal guests are assigned a table by a friendly cafe host. (All hosts are residents of our life-saving housing program.)
  • Diners are welcome to enjoy as many plates of food as they like.
  • Volunteers aged 12-years-old and up serve our guests. Sign up to volunteer.

Our Food

Blanchet House rescues fresh, excess food from businesses around Portland like the Oregon Convention Center and Trader Joe’s. We received over 300,00 pounds of donated food in 2019 and got it to hungry people. All other food is purchased from the Oregon Food Bank.

Every dish is prepared, cooked and served with care by men residing in our housing program.
