Food Pantries in/near Foster-Powell

A recent post we made to Instagram, which was a re-share of a posting from Urban Gleaners, prompted Amy Spears to comment and remind us that we also have a local food pantry at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church.

Thanks, Amy, for the reminder! We called St. Mark’s and confirmed that they are happy to take donations of fresh produce from your garden, in addition to the regular staples that they are asking for. You can find the details on their website.

We have information like this as well as other neighborhood resources within the Resources menu of our website. Be sure to check it out and please let us know if you know of anything else or see any information in need of an update.


Our Violin Chicken is Departing

We have been planning on posting these photos and video of our local Foster-Powell resident, Linda Hitt, who is otherwise known as the Portland Violin Chicken. But with so much going on in Foster-Powell, this post kept getting set aside while we announced other news. But based on a post from Linda on Nextdoor.com, we decided to get this posted out quickly. Sadly, Linda is moving out of Portland and the Violin Chicken is on a farewell tour.


We wish Linda and the Violin Chicken best of luck in their new city!
