More than $76,000 was raised to fight food insecurity in the community as part of Newport Avenue Market’s Food for February fundraiser.
The annual campaign raises money for hungry families in Central Oregon, donating the funds to food pantries in the region.
According to the Oregon Food Bank, February is one of the hardest months when money is tight after the holidays and pantries are depleted.
Since 2011, Food for February has raised more than $400,000 for Central Oregon families.
