As of October 2023 over $5000 has been distributed
The Sunriver Women’s Club kicked off a new fundraising effort, the Hunger Prevention Fund, to combat food insecurity in south Deschutes County. The campaign kicked off at the May 11 Board meeting and will continue through the summer months with no end date determined. The intent of the campaign is to raise funds for local food pantries to help offset costs due to increased demand and need and unparalleled food and fuel prices. The three local nonprofits to receive funds are the La Pine Community Kitchen, Sunriver Care & Share Outreach, and St. Vincent de Paul of La Pine. SWRC will gather and distribute funds monthly to these organizations.
