The Pendleton Lions have partnered withGrocery Outlet to conduct at least two food drives per year. The drives are usually scheduled in the spring and fall.
Grocery Outlet provides space near their front door and Lions Club personnel set up tables with information about Lions, the drive and what foods are recommended to donate. Friendly Lions are on hand to answer questions. Cash donations are accepted as well.

Shoppers leaving the store can drop off their food donations in carts provided by the Lions near the entrance.
All donations, both food and cash, are given to the Pendleton Outreach Food Pantry and Thrift Store (formerly St. Mary's Outreach). Lions transport the food items over to the food pantry where they are met by food pantry volunteers who sort and weigh the items
The Outreach Food Pantry is our local designated food bank. Donated foods are all subsequently provided free of charge to those in need by Outreach Food Pantry volunteers. Outreach Food Pantry and Thrift Store is located at 440 SW Emigrant Avenue. The pantry is open from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM and 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM Monday through Thursday.
Call 541-276-2878 for more information or you can follow theThrift Storeon Facebook.
