Build-a-Better Portland

Fresh Exchange matches the first $5 SNAP users spend at our King and Buckman Markets. This program provides access to fresh, local, healthy foods to Portland families. Not only to participants extend their food budgets but that money goes directly to PFM farmers. It would be a win-win, except I hate that phrase, so let’s call it a victory-triumph.

This Sunday, July 3 is the Build-a-Burger Fundraiser at King Market. 100% of proceeds go to Fresh Exchange thanks to generous donations from the Deck Family & Pine Mt. Ranch, Groundworks Organics, Grand Central Bakery, Unbound Pickling and Tim’s Cascade Chips.

If you don’t believe in altruism – $5 for a pastured beef burger is a better deal than you are going to enjoy anywhere, so go be selfish at King Market July 3rd. The Market is at NE 7th & Wygant and runs 10-2 – the burger portion goes 11-1.

PS – I’m actually a better cook than this, fire just gives me trouble.
