Bend Parks and Rec is hosting a drive-thru food drive this Saturday at the Bend Senior Center. The drive-thru component is a “first” to ensure contactless safety in light of the Covid pandemic. It’s being held from noon to 3 pm, and the food that’s donated will go to NeighborImpact to be distributed to those in need this holiday season throughout Central Oregon. They especially need cans of tuna and chicken, soups, stews, canned veggies, and canned fruits. Donations will also be accepted at the parking lot across the street from The Pavilion. NeighborImpact says the need this year jumped by fifty percent.
