Germaine’s Marketplace

Catholic Charities of Oregon’s food pantry is back and reborn as Germaine’s Marketplace.

Germaine’s Marketplace pantries provide food access for Catholic Charities clients experiencing food insecurity including refugees, immigrants, older adults, and families who live in Catholic Charities’ low-income housing properties. The marketplaces include non-perishable food items such as canned fruits and vegetables, dried and canned beans, pasta, cereal, peanut butter, and condiments along with frozen meats and a variety of delicious frozen meals freshly prepared by the students of Germaine’s Kitchen and Cafe’s culinary workforce development program. The Marketplace also stocks perishables including fresh produce, bread and dairy when available.

Questions? Please contact Kelsey Allan, the Food Response Network Program Director,  at KAllan@CCoregon.org
