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.

How to Get Help
Once a month a family can obtain a food box from the West Linn Food Pantry containing a 4-6 day supply of food and can come in weekly to pick up perishable items. Currently, over 100 families are receiving a once-a-month food box and over 50 people are in each week for perishables. At no time is anyone turned away.
Bread and fresh items are available weekly. We provide food for 4-6 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.
