Our Story

MealsonUsPDX started out as a small community operation with our Founder and Executive Director, Mark Guzman, cooking 150 meals a week out of his home kitchen and distributing them to those in need during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then MealsonUsPDX has grown with the help of many partners throughout the mutual aid community to help those in need of food resources. Today, thanks to the help of our network of community partners and our dedicated staff, we have grown into our own kitchen space and are now providing upwards of 3500 meals a week to those community members in need. With the work of our staff and the generosity of our community we will be able to continue our work and grow our impact in the community. At MealsonUsPDX all are welcome and we will always do what we can to help community members in need.
