Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Family Kitchen To Reopen Tuesday

Posted By on Mon, Mar 11, 2013 at 5:20 PM


Family Kitchen, an organization committed to serving the nutritional needs of the hungry, was forced to relocate after the Trinity Episcopal Church was severely damaged in one of seven fires set on Wednesday, March 6.

Church members and volunteers, however, were back distributing food Thursday night. Several people asked how they could help and this helped organizers push forward. The nearby First United Methodist Church made its space available so that families could enjoy dinner despite the destruction.

Today, President of the Board of Trustees of Family Kitchen, Pat Roden announced that the “Family Kitchen will reopen Tuesday, March 12, with [its] regularly scheduled service . . . We are grateful to all agencies who have stepped up to make this happen so quickly.”

If you would like to help Family Kitchen or the church, you can email If you're interested in sending a check, you can send it to Trinity Episcopal Church at 468 NW Wall Street, Bend, OR 97701.
