Portland, Oregon

The Portland Teen Board had their very first retreat this past weekend. These wonderful teens were able to write and share their own personal stories of social isolation. The opportunities are endless for what these Portland teens can bring to middle schools in Portland to help end social isolation and create a communities of kindness, caring, and helping one another.

If you are interested in having this group come to your school for an assembly, to teach the brand new amazing curriculum for No One Eats Alone Day, or to have them help to run No One Eats Alone Day, please contact me at: [email protected] or call me at 503-206-6779.

We hope you'll join us for No One Eats Alone Day on February 10, 2017.
