What is Zarephath Kitchen and Pantry?

Zarephath Kitchen and Pantry is a community outreach program housed in Gresham, Oregon providing food for low-income families and the homeless in the Gresham, Troutdale, Wood Village, Fairview and surrounding area.

Zarephath Kitchen and Pantry was established in 1985 with the mission to feed the hungry in the greater Gresham area. The Kitchen provides a hot lunch to anyone who visits, no questions asked. In 2001, we were able to add Zarephath Pantry to provide food for families that have a hard time making it through the month.


The kitchen feeds 80-110 meals a day Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Last year, we provided 17,086 meals.


The pantry, open Thursdays, provides a three-day food supply to needy families each time they visit. We help 100-150 individulas every week. Last year we provided food for 6,326 people.
