The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

The Cascade Culinary Institute at Central Oregon Community College has a new project that foodies are going to love. A newly purchased food truck, named the "Shirley Ray," is yet another exciting opportunity for culinary students, launched by COCC. The truck's namesake honors the late Shirley Ray, whose donations funded the project.

The food truck "will give students real-world experience," according to a recent press release. Similar to the student-operated restaurant, Elevation, the truck will be monitored by professors via interior cameras and provide students with skills necessary for success throughout their culinary professions. It will also allow students to gain the required experience for opening food carts of their own. The Shirley Ray's updated location can be tracked by visiting cascadeculinary.com
