The “Free Bread” table was the precursor to Unofficial Brentwood-Darlington Pop-Up Pantry. It started as a way to distribute food that would normally go to waste during the summer.
The first “free bread” table happened on June 10th, 2020. It had bread and pastries from Grand Central Bakery on SE Woodstock and leftovers from the Woodmere Elementary Pantry run by Impact NW. It was followed by additional tables on June 14th, June 22nd, and June 24th.
The first dual location “Unofficial Brentwood-Darlington Pop-Up Pantry” launched on July 1st.
Since July 1st, 2020, the Unofficial B-D Pop-Up Pantry has operated every Wednesday from 4-7PM and is supported entirely by donations and volunteers.
