Delivery by the Bowl | Chow | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

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.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Delivery by the Bowl

Every Friday, the business releases a new menu for the following week



Meal prep: If you're anything like me, it's probably the bane of your existence. Most people want to eat healthfully (well, mostly) yet don't have the time to order the compartmentalized containers and plan healthful meals, let alone execute the hours-long task of preparing them each week.

Enter Plentybowl, founded by Central Oregon local Marie Bason. Every Friday, the business releases a new menu for the following week. A different bowl is available each day and they take orders until sold out.

The bowls are made with seasonal produce grown locally and organically. A recent menu showcased bowls including chicken shawarma, lettuce wraps and quinoa bowls with fresh berries and goat cheese. With no delivery charges within city limits, Plentybowl is able to offer door-to-door service without the lack of accountability during food exchange that can sometimes happen with other meal delivery apps.

212 Revere Ave., Bend

Editor's note: The print version of this story misnamed the business. It's Plentybowl, not Plenty Bowls.
