Established in 1989, Store to Door is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization that provides a low-cost, personalized grocery shopping and delivery service to home-bound seniors and people with disabilities. Based in Northwest Portland, the agency serves approximately 350 people in Multnomah and Washington counties annually. With the cooperation of Fred Meyer, Store to Door seeks to support dignity and independent living for low-income elders.
How it Works
Store to Door is the only grocery service in NW Portland specifically designed to meet the needs of seniors and people with disabilities.
We phone our clients every week and take their order, if they have one.
If the store doesn't have an item requested, we will call from the store to offer alternatives.
Deliveries are once a week; we will even help put groceries away!
If the store carries it, we can bring it! Store to Door delivers groceries, prescription medications, postage stamps, bus and lift tickets, toiletries and household items.
We can apply store coupon credits to orders.
We help clients utilize SNAP (Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits, and can bill delivery fees to Multnomah County for clients with OPI (Oregon Project Independence) homecare entitlements.
Upon delivery, clients pay their grocery bill and delivery fee. Delivery fees are 10% of the total grocery bill (prescriptions are not included in the calculation), with a minimum of $3 . We leverage community support to supplement the actual cost of service.
