An innovative company in Portland is helping feed thousands of people in need. Thanks to the work of B-Line Urban Delivery and their B-share program, Portland Rescue Mission received over 5,000 lbs. of food to provide meals for men, women and children affected by homelessness.
B-Line specializes in “sustainable urban delivery”, using large cargo tricycles to solve the challenges conventional trucks and vans face serving the dense urban core. Their pedal-powered approach saves time, lowers delivery costs and reduces emissions.
Through their B-share program, B-Line helps restaurants, grocery stores and food suppliers give back to the community. Surplus food that might otherwise go to waste is donated to non-profit organizations that help feed people in need.
B-Line’s unique delivery system makes it possible for hungry people to receive fresh fruits and vegetables, not just canned goods. This fresh produce is a vital resource for Portland Rescue Mission, enabling us to provide high-nutrient value in the 232,000 meals we provide throughout the year.
Thank you, B-Line and Whole Foods for helping us feed and care for our community!
