The Oregon Public House began as a dream to bring the individual charitable experience into the social space of a community. They wanted to transform the solitary act of quietly donating to a good cause and give it some bravado — and some beer.

It took three years to renovate the building at 700 NE Dekum Street in Portland. Today the “family-friendly” pub, with its delicious-looking menu of sandwiches, pastas and salads, is open every day at noon.

It serves as a “community center for change” with 100% of all profits going to a variety of charities on the menu — just pick your favorite.
