Food on the Run | 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.

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
