Who We Are

Updated: Jun 17, 2021

The theme of the column, ‘Who We Are’, is to shine a light on yourself and others doing food in our county and to blur the lines between ‘us’ and ‘them’. We are a family of dedicated workers and I encourage you to celebrate the connection rather than look for the differences. We are all an important part of the world-renowned culinary scene in Portland and it’s time we see who we are.

Please contact us at if you would like to be featured. Dare to see and be seen.


Type of food service: A benevolent organization serving full course meals for the hungry and homeless.

Originally from:

Trudi is from Nebraska and Leslie is a native Portlandian.  

How you got here: We both love to eat food and help others in need.

Biggest challenge with food code: Sweaty palms when we see the health inspector coming!

Favorite thing about the business: Our love for our volunteers and those we serve.

Hours worked daily: 10 hours a day - 2 times a week.

Favorite food: The oven baked chicken we serve every Monday.
