HELP FEED HUNGRY KIDS and KEEP OUR LOCAL RESTAURANTS IN BUSINESS
(YOUR NEIGHBORS, YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR GRANDCHILDREN)
Le Bebe Cakes and La Grande Main Street have partnered with the nonprofit, EES, to feed hungry kids in Union County and support our local restaurants at the same time! EES has launched a new program called KIDS (Kids Immediate Dinner Solutions) This program has a twofold mission. Our goal is to feed kids that normally wouldn't get a healthy meal for dinner during this time of crisis, and to provide financial support to the local restaurants who are struggling economically!
We are asking local owners of local restaurants to provide a healthy dinner for kids 12 and under. The locations will vary every day so that every restaurant willing to participate in this partnership will have the opportunity to benefit. Children can go to the "restaurant of the day" and pick up their dinner between 3:00 PM and 7:00 PM, Monday through Friday. If a parent wants to and is in a position where they are able to pay for their child's dinner, then we ask that they pay it forward by donating $5 to a jar at the restaurant so that we can pay the next restaurant for the next child's meal.
We are also partnering with CHD and local teachers! The teachers in our community will be delivering meals to children that do not have the means to go to the restaurant. If they are sick, their parents are sick, their parents are working during the time frame, or if they have been hit economically hard by the current employment status and can not afford fuel to drive to the restaurant then our teachers will be delivering the kids food directly to them.
This is a temporary program only to continue through the duration of the current crisis.
$5 will pay for 1 child's dinner
$20 will pay for 4 children's dinners
$100 will cover 20 dinners!!!
According to https://worldpopulationreview.com/us-counties/or/union-county-population/, there are 4,788 kids in Union County, Oregon.

I love our community because we are ALWAYS there for each other. Right now our local businesses need our support and our children need the comfort of a hot meal! You can help with both with one donation!
