Garden Bar Teams up with CAP


At GARDEN BAR our mission is to contribute to the health our our community through the promotion of healthy eating and living habits, and partnering with local small businesses and non-profits. So it was natural that we would want to team up with Cascade AIDS Project (CAP). CAP is the oldest and largest community-based provider of HIV services, housing, education and advocacy in Oregon and Southwest Washington. 

"Cascade AIDS Project helps people put their lives back together by securing housing, finding essential medical care, and dealing with the countless issues that make the difference between giving up or getting up and going on. With HIV and AIDS, the huge emotional and financial burden to all affected by it can be staggering."

CAP holds many fantastic fundraisers throughout the year such as the Aids Walk in September, the Art Auction in May, and Bat n' Rouge in July. We are proud to be holding a month long fundraiser at GARDEN BAR through the sales of our August salad special, The CAP Turkey BLT.

The CAP Turkey BLT was created by CAP Special Events Coordinator (and all around fun Portland person!) Andrew Shayde and GB chef Gabe. Butter lettuce, roasted turkey, bacon, tomatoes, sweet piquante peppers, cucumber, dried cranberries, bagel chips, tossed with our house-made bourbon maple sherry vinaigrette make this number delicious AND nutritious.

Available for the month of August, $2 from the sale of each CAP salad will be donated to Cascade Aids Project to support their mission in the Portland community.

So come down to any of our 6 Garden Bar locations to enjoy a delicious and healthy lunch while contributing to our amazing Portland community.
