Help Fill Empty Plates
Our primary method for raising funds began as a pilot project at Newport Ave. Market in 2002. Now, at any of the participating stores and businesses throughout Central Oregon, you can select one of three coupon options which will purchase meals for others. The coupons are scanned and the amount simply added to your purchase total.
The full amount of collected donations is distributed to the Hunger Prevention Coalition monthly. In turn, every dollar raised through Help Fill Empty Plates is shared among our partner agencies.
Some locations offer placards with a QR code to scan from your smart phone. You will be directed straight to our PayPal® donation site. Make a donation while you wait at the checkout counter!
