                                     REOPENING THIS SATURDAY JANUARY 13TH . . .


CROSSROADS CHURCH        9100 SW Wilshire St. Portland, OR 97225

Every Gleaner family is important to each other and the community we live and serve in. We don’t want to leave anyone behind. Please use the 

Tualatin Valley Gleaners Facebook Group page to seek the needed help in transportation to the new distribution site. We have a map and different links below to help in your transportation needs. Remember to use the Facebook Group page ( for current Tualatin Valley Gleaner members) to collaborate carpooling and other needs. Here is the link: Tualatin Valley Gleaners Group Page

If you are not a member of the group site yet, and are currently a TVG member please ask to join and answer the prompted questions.

WHAT WILL SATURDAY DISTRIBUTION LOOK LIKE NOW?


We will be going through some changes as we work through our move from the Allen and Hall distribution center to the new distribution location at Crossroads on Willshire st.

BUT . . .

I want to reassure individuals and families, that other than location change – the items that will be changing will not be affecting the food supply. We are still a membership based food with dignity program, where each participates in their own food security while helping others in need. We will still have fresh vegetables, fruit, dairy and breads available every week to supply your family with nutritious healthy choices while becoming more food secure!

While we figure out the BEST possible distribution practices at our new location, we ask that everyone is patient and respectful at our new location. This Saturday we will have an area outside and covered that we will have you wait, and we will call in 5 families at a time to go through. We ask :

  • All food drivers to arrive between 12-12:30
  • Volunteers arrive at 12:00pm (noon)
  • Wheelchair and disabled (Group 1) to arrive at 2:00 pm
  • Regular line (Group 2) to arrive at 2:30        (must be checked in by 3:15 pm)
  • We have been starting close up and clean up by 3:30pm each Saturday.

OTHER RULES TO FOLLOW AND REMEMBER

  • SMOKING ONLY IN YOUR VEHICLES OR OFF OF CHURCH PROPERTY
    • All cigarettes must be picked up and disposed of in the garbage –not on the ground!
  • STAY IN DESIGNATED AREAS ONLY
    • All children must be kept with parents at all times. Children that are unaccompanied will be brought back to parents and on 2nd request, asked to leave for that day.



This is a Portland address, but in located in the Beaverton area. 
This church is close to the HWY 217 AND HWY 26 interchange.

The public transportation is limited to this location, and my best suggestion is to work on carpooling with friends/neighbors. We will be assessing the transit issues as we go forward. The Sunset Transit station is the closest transit station (one mile from transit station to distribution site), go to Trimet.org and enter your address and the distribution address, to research possible options. Ride Connection is another resource for those who are 60+ years young or disabled to receive rides to the distribution
