Sustainability

 

Community

We have supported NW Loaves & Fishes by providing weekly meals for the NW Portland center since 2009 to 2016.

We are committed to donating and/or partnering with local community resources and nonprofits who reach out and assist those in need.

The following organizations are just some of the nonprofits that can use more support:

Raphael House and Bradley Angle Domestic Violence Help Centers for Families

Friends of the Children Outreach program for our at risk children

Meals on Wheels Providing hot meals to our senior citizens within Multnomah, Washington and Clark Counties

Human Society of United States ”the nation’s most effective and largest animal protection organization”

Environment

  • To reduce the burden on landfills, our waste management programs includes recycling and composting.
  • We  encourage guests to reuse containers and bags.  We offer a $.25 discount for each brought in for take-out.
  • All of our printed materials are on recycled paper.
  • We maintain our grease traps and drains by servicing them every other week.  This further insures the waste from these traps do not enter the public sewage system.
