As a proud supporter of Portland Rescue Mission, Harry’s Fresh Foods was privileged to join Shepherd’s Door, PRM’s women’s addiction recovery center that provides a home to over 40 women as well as their children, for an evening of amazing food and fun fellowship. Our team assembles each year to mutually agree upon what matters to us as a company, and this year we decided to use our time and resources to give back to our community.
Because making fresh food is what we do at Harry’s, what better way to give back than make and share a meal with the women and children at Shepherd’s Door. Upon our arrival, the folks at Shepherd’s Door welcomed our team with open arms. The residents and the Harry’s team enjoyed a night of fun and games and delicious food prepared by our talented chefs! It was an honor to get to know the residents there and hear their stories of not just surviving, but of hope and recovery. Truly amazing people!
Even though the evening was more about serving and giving back, our team gained more from this opportunity than had we done a more traditional team-building activity. This speaks to the core of who we strive to be at Harry’s – a group of passionate, hard working people committed to creating innovative products for our trading partners while giving back to our local community.
