Pantry Hours & What to Expect

Pantry Hours of Service

Bethlehem House of Bread provides free food to over 300 hungry families per month. At a time when 1 in 7 Oregonians are food insecure, BHOB fills an important need in the community by making sure fewer of our neighbors go to bed hungry.

Food Pantry Service Hours:

Sundays & Thursdays: 1:00-3:00 pm

Tuesdays: 5:00-7:00 pm    

The pantry is open for anyone who is food insecure to shop once a month.

Clothing & Household Store

The free onsite store is stocked with clothing and household essentials for our guests. The store is open when the pantry is available for shopping.

What to Expect

If you’ve never been inside a food pantry, BHOB doesn’t look much different than a typical grocery store, just on a smaller scale. With the assistance of friendly volunteers, you’ll go through the pantry choosing items that meet the dietary needs and preferences of your family.

With an eye toward healthy food, BHOB’s pantry shelves are stocked with many of the same products and staples you would find at a store. Recipes with products from the pantry are available to encourage healthy choices.

We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, volunteers, guests, and partners.

Stories of Change

“I was a single mom providing a comfortable lifestyle for my family. Our lives changed over night and I was struggling to provide basic necessities for my family. My first experience in the pantry was such a blessing— I couldn’t believe the generosity and loving spirit that exuded from everyone. The BHOB community changed my life; not only with food to feed my family, but also by opening my heart to the needs of others and reminding me how much good can be accomplished when people come together. I’m now in a better place and able to volunteer at BHOB and give back to the place that helped me.”

“My family started experiencing food insecurity a few years ago. Bethlehem House of Bread has truly blessed our family by putting food on the table and letting money usually reserved for groceries go to keeping us in housing. Without BHOB, I’m not sure what my family would do.”
