There are several places in Portland that are offering FREE hot meals on Christmas Day. All meals are served takeout-style during the COVID-19 pandemic and everyone is welcome. Please check with the organization to find out what types of food they will be serving.

Please note: Blanchet House does not serve meals on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day so that our shelter residents can enjoy a day of rest.
