PPS Food Fund Update: The families of many Portland Public Schools students are food insecure, and those students depend on daily school meals to get enough to eat. Our food insecure PPS families also can’t afford to stock up on food during this pandemic the way other more-advantaged families can. Donating to the PPS Food Fund can help get these families through this crisis.
The PPS Food Fund is a collaboration by the Foundation for PPS and Food Fuels Learning (FFL) to help ensure food security for PPS students and is made possible through generous donations by the community.

Our partner, Food Fuels Learning, is releasing another round of PPS Food Fund Grants up to $2,500 are available for organizations or projects that work to build immediate or long-term food security for PPS students and families. The deadline for this round of applications is February 12, 2021.
