Support Riot Ribs, a Portland, Oregon Volunteer Effort That Feeds Local Protesters

Support Riot Ribs, a Portland, Oregon volunteer effort that’s been feeding locals for free during the Summer 2020 Black Lives Matter protests.


Riot Ribs sparked into being on July 4, 2020. The all-volunteer pop-up barbecue has fed Portland protesters around the clock ever since.


Riot Ribs has been harassed by the cops and similar forces fairly often. (Big shock there, we know.) It’s also earned the full-throated support of Earl Blumenauer, an Oregon member of the U.S. House of Representatives.


Feeding people as much as they need, 24/7, means Riot Ribs is always seeking donations.
