Mark your calendars and get your tickets ASAP! Bon Appétit Presents Feast Portland is returning for its seventh year. The event kicks off Thursday, September 13 with exceptional programming through Sunday, September 16. Feast is teaming up with Oregon Fruit Products to kick off its third annual Matching Challenge donation campaign to support Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon and Urban Gleaners, two locally based charity partners who are working hard to end hunger and food waste in Oregon. Starting on Friday, July 13th and continuing through Monday, July 23rd, Oregon Fruit Products and valued Feast partners have agreed to match any donation, dollar-for-dollar, up to the first $5,000, doubling the impact of each donation!
Since 2012, Feast has raised more than $372,000 to help end hunger in Oregon and across the country, and is proud to continue supporting this important cause through its 2018 charitable partners. The funds raised from this year’s 10-day Matching Challenge will help support programs like summer meal access, including the mobile markets and summer markets the charities provide and fill with delicious food. The matching challenge is also open to the public; Feast attendees, the local community, and supporters across the nation may also help each charity partner end hunger in Oregon by donating during the matching challenge. For more information on how to donate, please visit www.feastportland.com/whywefeast/.
In addition to the support from Feast partners, the festival will see the return of the third “Feast Fab Collab” series and a new t-shirt collaboration with Portland-based apparel company Bridge & Burn, with a portion of proceeds from all sales of these items benefitting both charity partners. For each exclusive Feast Fab Collab item, Feast teams up with some of the top participating artisans and chefs to create limited edition, one-of-a-kind festival-inspired items. To stay updated on the Feast Fab Collab, please visit http://www.feastportland.com/about-feast/feast-fab-collab/.
Supporters are encouraged to help spread the word about the campaign by using the hashtag #WhyWeFeast on all social media platforms.
