From Sandra Jones, SUN Site Manager at Hollydale Elementary School 🌞
Here are some photos from our very first summer program! Even though we were not able to be at Hollydale for the summer, due to the bond construction, the location at Gresham United Methodist Church worked very well. In addition to servicing students from Hollydale, we also had students from West Gresham Elementary School.

Cooking Classes from MFS Hunger Relief Team

Last Thursday, MFS Hunger Relief programs held a Vietnamese cooking class at West Powellhurst, led by MFS Hunger Relief AmeriCorps member Thu Le, and two Vietnamese community members. They taught parents, students and volunteers how to make Vietnamese salad rolls and peanut sauce, sticky coconut rice, and a Vietnamese chicken and vegetable soup. 🥥🍲🍴

Each family took home a bag of healthy groceries and recipes! Thank you, Portland Children’s Levy for the support!
