Bend’s Family Kitchen is seeing more and more people come through the doors for their meals. They serve six days a week, Monday through Saturday. Donna Thayer, the head of the Family Kitchen served at Trinity Episcopal Church downtown says the need is greater than ever. “What we're seeing is a 30% increase over the number of meals we're serving as compared to last year. Starting in July we saw a big increase in the number we're serving.” Thayer says they're currently serving 3500 hundred meals a month. The family kitchen is run by volunteers from ten churches and pays for the food through grants and donations.
