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.

Aina, a Hawaiian-eats food truck, now open in the 9th Street Village

Capturing the fresh flavors of the Aloha State, Aina Kauai Style Grill brings food to Bend that you're not going to find anywhere else. The truck was opened by Ian Vidinha, a Hawaiian native from the fourth-largest island and current Bend local. On the menu you'll find poke bowls, chili pepper chicken, katsu (a delicious take on fried chicken) and other featured specials. If you're like me and don't have a Hawaiian vacation planned in the near future, I'm sure Aina can hold us down for the time being.
