SUPPORT OUR FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AT PDX DURING THE SHUTDOWN!

Northwest VEG is organizing a vegan meal delivery for Portland’s TSA workers and air traffic controllers this Sunday! Read on if you’d like to help by making food to share!

We all know about the government shutdown affecting federal workers, who have now gone without one paycheck and are facing an uncertain future. Workers here at PDX have been showing up and doing their jobs despite the shutdown, but many are living paycheck to paycheck and could use a little help. Drop off a vegan dish to share with PDX TSA workers and air traffic controllers this Sunday (the 20th) between 12 and 3:30pm.

Please bring your vegan dish (in a container you don’t mind sacrificing), along with a list of ingredients (allergens especially!) between noon and 3:30pm this Sunday (the 20th) to:

East sideHerbivore Clothing Company, located in the vegan mini mall: 1211 SE Stark St, Portland, OR 97214
West sideAnnie Bloom’s Books: 7834 SW Capitol Hwy, Portland, OR 97219

If carpooling out and being part of the delivery team is something you’d like to do, let us know and we will get you info about meeting points. A representative from PDX TSA is prepared to meet us at the airport at 4:15pm and everyone there is grateful for the contributions. Contact jaclyn@nwveg.orgwith any questions. 

Guidelines for what to bring:
- Vegan, so no dairy, eggs, honey, or any other animal product, please 
- Nothing that needs immediate refrigeration or freezing
- Can be as simple as sandwiches, or as complex as a seitan wellington!

After our PDX delivery we will be meeting up for a 5pm - 8pm potluck at Multnomah Friends Meeting Hall, 4312 SE Stark St, 97215. Please join us to share a meal together and talk about other ways we can reach out to the Portland community over the coming year.
