Helping Businesses Reduce Hunger and Waste

About Fork it Over

Fork It Over! is a program designed to reduce hunger and waste in the Portland metropolitan area by connecting food businesses with food rescue agencies. The program was created by Metro in 2004 and updated by Community Environmental Services in 2012.


Fork it Over! is an education & referral service only, not a food rescue agency or food provider. If you need food, please contact Oregon Food Bank at 503-282-0555.
