The Great Community Dine Out for FISH Food Bank!

On Thursday, November 10th, FISH Food Bank will be holding its first ever fundraising event.

The Great Community Dine Out for FISH Food Bank!  FISH invites everyone to come dine out and declare a no-cooking day! On Nov. 10th, dozens of local generous restaurants in Hood River, Parkdale, Mosier, Odell and Cascade Locks have signed up to help support FISH by donating up to 15% of their day’s earnings to FISH Food Bank.  

FISH urges everyone to head out to their favorite participating restaurant, coffee shop, food truck, bakery, brewery (or all of the above!). The proceeds from your purchase will help support your local friends and neighbors struggling with food insecurity in Hood River County and the Gorge.  Check out FISH’s website, www.fish-food-bank.com, for the ever-growing list of participating restaurants and be sure to mark your calendars for Nov. 10!  If you can’t make it out that day, you can donate directly to FISH– see their website for more details on how to help.

Donations from The Great Community Dine Out will be used to supplement the thousands of dollars a month FISH spends to purchase staples like fresh produce, milk, eggs, cheese, butter and meat items to support the food bank’s clients.

FISH is very grateful for the much needed support and hopes everyone can join together on this fun day of community giving. Remember also to give our amazing local businesses an extra “thank you” for their generous support of FISH too.  If you are a restaurant owner and haven’t yet been contacted by FISH and would like to join in the party, please contact fishfundraising@gmail.com to be added to the list!

FISH Food Bank is a 501c3 non-profit organization that’s been serving Hood River and the Gorge for 53 years (53!).  FISH provides food to over 500 families every month, a number that’s only expected to rise in the coming winter months.
