King City Grocery Outlet collects food for local pantries

Independence from Hunger campaign runs through July

King City Grocery Outlet is now promoting its Independence from Hunger campaign, a month-long, companywide event to help feed hungry people.

Throughout the month of July, the store and its customers will collect food for people in need.

'We are proud to partner with St. Vincent de Paul and Tigard Covenant Church Food Pantry to help people who don't always know where they will find their next meal,' said Tony Slyter, co-owner of King City Grocery Outlet. 'As local business owners, we are committed to supporting our local community and neighbors in need.'

There are three ways to help:

-- Look for specially marked food items. These are items that St. Vincent de Paul and Tigard Covenant Church Food Pantry currently need. Purchase those items and place them in the collection bin at the front of the store.

-- Tell a cashier that you'd like to make a cash donation at the register. Donations will go directly to St. Vincent de Paul and Tigard Covenant Church Food Pantry.

-- Pick up information at King City Grocery Outlet about hunger, food insecurity and local/national resources for people in need. Be informed and willing to help.

King City Grocery Outlet is located at 15705 S.W. 116th Ave., and is locally owned and operated by Tony and Tina Slyter, who also own the Newberg Grocery Outlet.
