Newport Avenue Market donates $56,000 to Family Kitchen

Newport Avenue Market donated $56,000 to Family Kitchen on Tuesday. The gift, the largest in-kind donation in Family Kitchen history, will fund sixty-seven percent of Family Kitchen’s annual food and food-related costs to fight hunger in Bend.

The donation is a result of $26,000 in donations from Newport Avenue shoppers, $25,000 of matched funds contributed by Newport Avenue Market and generous donations from Oregon Country Beef and 100 Women Who Care Central Oregon. Donna Burklo, development and marketing director at Family Kitchen, accepted the check.
