Bon Appétit Presents Feast Portland: A Celebration of Oregon Bounty

Feast Portland is the flagship food and drink festival in the Pacific Northwest, capturing the current energy and enthusiasm driving America's food revolution. Feast showcases local culinary talent and Oregon ingredients, alongside nationally recognized chefs and influencers during a four-day celebration. 

At the heart of the festival is a mission to end childhood hunger in Oregon and in our country. A state where food is so plentiful should not also rank as one of the hungriest in the nation. This part of the four-day dynamic exchange of ideas, inspiration and dialogue Feast Portland creates with enthusiasts from Oregon, across the U.S. and around the globe.

Share Our Strength is proud to be a co-beneficiary of Feast Portland along with Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon.
