Launch Pad Gallery: Featuring the work of local emerging artists.

Food Resources

This list of resources was lovingly compiled by a friend of the gallery to bring artists (and any hungry person) access to some of the food bounty that Portland has to offer. Please, think about how you conduct yourself as you engage with these generous community members who are putting out effort to share free food with you- remember, how we act as individuals affects how we are perceived as a group!
