The food will be picked up by a TransPonder team member on Thursday morning and displayed on a clean table in our office for people to stop by and pick up, until supplies last. Bring containers for the food you take! Please take however much or little you want for your household, and if you’re curious what’s available that day you can call and/or email the office on Thursdays after 10a.

Directions

Our building is located in the historic Oregon Office Building, across from the post office and next to the Smith Family Bookstore building. Our office is on the 3rd floor, at the top of the stairs, across from the elevator; we’re in room #310. (Update: there’s construction at the office; it’s often easier to take the elevator.)

There is free 3-hour parking behind our building, between Oak St. and Willamette St. And free 1-hour parking in the parking lot next to the old Oregon Electric Station across the street. You have to register through your phone at one of the pay panels to get the free hour.
