Our Ethos Statement
Portland Foodbank is committed to an ethos based upon the understanding that God is love, He is good, and He loves the world. Christ has commanded we love Him first and then our neighbour as ourselves. All we do comes from that basic understanding and motivates us to share the good news of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection as the way of obtaining a relationship with God. Portland Foodbank is but one expression of God’s love for people through which we aim to open doors for the good news into the hearts of anyone who will receive it.
