Festival of Heart & Harvest PDX 2017

Come As You Are and be welcome to...
CAYA Coven PDX Festival of Heart and Harvest
presented by the Order of the Black Madonna, a temple dedicated to Our Lady of Social Justice

Saturday, August 19, 2017

hosted at The Sacred Well, 7927 SE 13th Avenue, Portland, OR

Child friendly
suggested donation $10-$20, no one turned away for lack of funds

You are cordially and joyfully invited to the Festival of Heart and Harvest celebrating the feast of Lammas/Lughnasadh at the Sacred Well in Portland, brought to you by CAYA PDX and the Order of the Black Madonna.

Our great Dark Mother, the Mother of All who loves and watches out for all Her children no matter where they are on the path of life or in the world, bids us ask about those who are vulnerable in our society. She asks us, “Do they have enough?” We ask ourselves: “What kind of community can we build if workers are treated well, food is plentiful, love is plentiful?”

Come and join us to celebrate and create abundance for ourselves and community!

This event is also a food drive to help those struggling with food safety in our community, so please bring an offering of canned/dry goods to donate. Most needed items at present are: canned tuna or chicken, natural peanut butter, nuts and beans, brown rice, quinoa, low sodium canned soup, whole grain cereal, and oatmeal; remember, no glass containers please. Thank you!

CAYA’s Fourth Annual Virtual Food Drive!

Hey Everyone! Remember how I said you can help out your neighbors in Alameda County? Here's your chance: https://www.vfd-accfb.org/grouphome.aspx?ID=6363

This is year 4 of our virtual food drive, and I've set our goal just a touch higher, at $600. That will translate to about $3600 of food for local children, elders, and families.

Every dollar translates to about $6 worth of food when they buy in bulk, so even a little bit helps!

To help us reach our goal, please be sure to choose CAYA Coven from the pull down menu on your right. We have 6 weeks to raise $600, so I'm sure we can do it!

Also, if you have non-perishable goods to donate directly, there's a barrel for drop off at
The Sacred Well in Oakland.

Blessed Be!

CAYA's Annual Virtual Food Drive 2015

A message from Stella Iris RedRaven of the CAYA Public Service Track:

Hello friends and family!

I'm very excited! I've just done something to fight hunger and poverty right here in my neighborhood. :) You can too.

Each year, CAYA Coven hosts a virtual food drive to support hungry families in Alameda County. The ACCFB is a huge supplier and clearinghouse for donations, providing healthy food to smaller distribution centers throughout the area.

Follow this link: https://www.vfd-accfb.org/home.aspx if you'd like to participate. Use the drop down menu on the top right to attribute your donation to CAYA, so we can keep track. If we hit our goal of $500 (not much) we will be providing over $3000 worth of food to our friends and neighbors. Let's blow that goal out of the water (even if you don't live here)!

"For every $1 contributed, we’ll provide $6 worth of healthy food to low-income children, adults and seniors in our neighborhoods. Whether a warm meal at a soup kitchen or a bag of healthy groceries from one of our Mobile Pantries, you nourish the bodies and minds of our community’s most vulnerable.

Thank you for partnering with us in our pursuit of a hunger-free community.

In gratitude,

The Alameda County Community Food Bank"

CAYA will also be collecting dry and canned food donations at all of our upcoming Full Moon rituals on Saturday, August 29: the Laughing Moon (Grove of the Goddess and Brotherhood of the Moon) and Juicy Moon (Rainbow Moon Circle).
