Rolling Oasis Grocers was a social enterprise in Lents, Oregon, from 2014 to 2017. It was one of the earliest ventures into adapting grocery services to a post-retail world, and remained the only one in Portland to prioritize service in food insecure parts of town. Rolling Oasis saved over 2500 trips to the grocery store in that time to dozens of neighbors through hundreds of miles of bicycling organic food straight to their doors.
Several people have expressed interest in rebooting a reimagined version of the service — both in Lents and beyond. If you’d like to learn more about this innovative, low-cost way to enhance food access in your neighborhood, please reach out to brandon[at]rollingoasis.com.
