Getting Food from Tualatin School House Pantry
We provide emergency food to people living in the Tualatin, Durham, Lake Oswego and West Linn areas. You will be asked for documentation verifying that you live in our service area (a utility bill provides good documentation). If you live outside of our service area you can contact the Oregon Food Bank for information on the emergency food services in your area.
No appointment is necessary but please note TSHP's hours of operation.

- How we operate: Tualatin School House Pantry operates similar to a neighborhood grocery store with two differences: there is no charge for the food that you receive, and you will get a personal shopping assistant. Our shopping assistant will help you select the food that your family wants. The amount of food that you will receive is based on our standard allocations for a family your size as well as the current available supply of food. Whenever possible, we try to have volunteers available to help you take your food to your car. Welcome to our pantry!!!
- Your first visit: On your first visit, we will ask you some basic questions including the number of adults/children in your family and information about any special dietary needs. We will also ask you questions about your household income and government assistance programs to determine if your family is eligible for USDA food items.
- Returning visits: Each time you receive emergency food from the pantry, we will ask you to sign your name indicating that you have read the information concerning USDA guidelines. This also serves as a receipt that you have picked up a food box during the current month. NOTE: You can receive an emergency food box no more than once in each calendar month.
We hope that you enjoy your experience at Tualatin School House Pantry!
