It's On Us Corvallis, to nourish and support each other.
The concept: A community-sourced fund that provides meals for folks who need a boost, business to restaurants, and security to our friends and neighbors. This effort is in direct response to COVID-19's devastating effects on local business, employees, and community members, but, with your help, we think this fund has staying power. With community support and encouragement, we believe a pay it forward model will thrive in Corvallis.
Keep the fund revolving and we'll work to expand its reach.
How it works: IOU will open a $3,000 tab at a different restaurant each week.
The tab is open to any member of the community to enjoy a meal at the participating resturant (no alcohol permitted on the tab).
Those in the community who need ways to give back will donate to fund future meals.
More information: We are community members inspired to help and who believe in the power of paying it forward.
All funds are distributed directly to participating restaurants.
IOU Corvallis is a project of the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition’s Food Action Team.
If you'd like to get in touch, we welcome your feedback. We're in this together.
