Powell’s City of Books Drives the Food!

If you're heading downtown to our flagship Burnside store, why not grab a can of those beets you're never actually going to eat and donate it to the food drive?

Between now and January 5th, Powell's Books on Burnside is working with the Oregon Food Bank to collect canned and non-perishable boxed items for those in need. (But please, nothing that's homemade or opened!)

Since we are now OFFICIALLY in a recession that started last December, the number of those in need is growing all the time.

You'll find drop-off barrels in the Orange and Green rooms. Here's a store map to guide you — and if you get confused, just find a smiling face at an Info desk to help.

And don't try pawning off Aunt Mathilda's 300-pound fruitcake on us! If it's not in an unopened can or box, please don't donate it.
