Making a Difference Since 1988
The Waterfront Blues Festival is committed to providing a world-class event to the community of Portland and beyond that presents diverse musical arts, culture, and entertainment. We care about supporting organizations that are making a difference in our communities, providing them with an opportunity to connect and gain support from the tens of thousands of enthusiastic Blues Fest fans. The festival is committed to using its broad platform to create awareness and support for organizations focused on hunger relief efforts and music.
Meals on Wheels People
Meals on Wheels People has been changing lives, one meal at a time, since 1970. Every weekday they provide 8,000 meals to thousands of older adults in the greater Portland metro area. Their service not only alleviates hunger and social isolation, but allows seniors to live independently with dignity in their own homes. Aging in place reduces depression, falls and hospitalization as well as the high cost of institutional care.
