Members of Bakers Local 114 supported Franz Bakery at United Way’s Potluck in the Park event Jan. 14, part of the Martin Luther King Jr. day of service. The Franz Bakery truck serves grilled cheese sandwiches. Potluck in the Park provides free meals at O’Bryant Square in downtown Portland throughout the year to those without homes or food. The MLK Day of Service was a first-time event for Franz.
Local 114 Secretary Treasurer Terry Lansing worked with the company, Eryn Byram, executive director of Labor’s Community Service Agency, and Hosheman Brown of United Way Columbia Willamette to make it happen.
Local 114 represents workers at Franz, and Lansing sits on the board of directors of Labor’s Community Service Agency, as does Brown.
