We're on a mission to erase food insecurity.
We wouldn't exist without our mission. Acorn Community Cafe was opened by the team behind Lunch People, a volunteer-run community group founded in 2020 with a mission to reduce the burden of hunger by investing in food security. By the end of 2020, Lunch People volunteers had served thousands of free, high-quality hot meals and came to realize that the community still needs much more. Acorn Community Cafe opened in April 2021, providing a physical space for our vision to grow. In 2022, our community group has been formalized into an Oregon nonprofit with pending tax status, the 86 Hunger Foundation.
We're proud to work in solidarity with BIPOC, queer, and gender diverse community members and are committed to helping make Acorn Community Cafe a safe and welcoming place for everyone.
