This year Nancy Steele Photography collected 842 lbs of food
-- their best year ever!!
Nancy Steele Photography held its 5th annual portrait food drive on November 4th and 5th.
"We have raised over 2,400 lbs of food in five years. It started from a letter of need from the West Linn Food Pantry; they were low on donations. As a local business owner there is no better way for me to help those in need. It all began there and it is now an annual event."

West Linn Food Pantry is a 501(c)3 charitable, non-profit that provides food boxes for families in the West Linn and Lake Oswego areas. Located inside the Willamette United Methodist Church in West Linn, local families have utilized this community-operated service since January 2007. The pantry doors are always open to those who are hungry.
In 2016, the Pantry served 1,126 families; 2,324 adults and 1,000 children. In addition, the Pantry provided 130 families with Holiday food boxes and gifts for 158 children.
Thank you for all the community support. All of us working together make a huge difference in building a stronger community.
Once a month a family may obtain a food box from the West Linn Food Pantry containing a 3-5 day supply of food. They may also come in weekly to pick up perishable items such as bread, produce and pastries. Currently, over 100 families receive a once-a-month food box and over 50 people come in weekly for perishables.
Bread, produce and pastries are available weekly. We provide food for approximately 3-5 days, based on the number of people in the home, as well as personal care products, as available.
Home deliveries can be arranged for seniors, individuals who are homebound, or families without transportation. Deliveries are made on the 3rd Thursday of each month for those who are homebound.
