PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — An unexpected act of kindness helped out the Blanchet House, which itself provides acts of kindness on a daily basis to those in need.
The catering company Vibrant Table prepared more than 500 dishes for the Blanchet House and donated them — beef chili, salad, cornbread, a slice of cake.
It’s a welcome rest for the kitchen at Blanchet House, which cooks 3 meals a day 6 days a week for anyone who needs one.
Jon Seibert, the volunteer manager at the Blanchet House, said the offer from Vibrant Table came as a total surprise.
“They just emailed out of the blue,” Seibert said.
Since the pandemic began in March, the Blanchet House has been doing only to-go meals.
