Today marks the start of our annual fundraiser, Food for February, that will run in-store the entire month of December. All donations will go to Bend’s Family Kitchen, enabling their food budget to go further by buying food at wholesale cost, to feed our hungry neighbors.
February is one of the hardest hitting months for hungry families in Central Oregon. Money is tight after the holidays, donations dwindle, and food pantries are depleted. That’s why we created Food for February in 2011.
Since then, the program has raised $287,722 for hungry families in Central Oregon, including $138,000 in matching funds from Newport Avenue Market and Melvin’s by Newport Avenue Market. This can’t happen without shopper generosity, and for that we thank you!
Come in anytime December 1-31 and let your cashier know how much you’d like to donate. We’ll match your donation dollar-for-dollar up to $25,000*. Talk about making your money count! You can write your name on a plate, and we’ll proudly display it at the store.
Please donate when you shop with us this December. Everyone deserves a meal, thanks for helping make that happen during this holiday and throughout 2020.
Merry Christmas and here’s to a less hungry New Year!
