Meal of the Year

 

2023 Meal of the Year

Meal of the Year supports the dreams and aspirations of COCC students by raising funds for scholarships that will open doors once closed and change the students' lives forever. For 44 years, we have gathered for one evening filled with good food, drink, merriment and friends all in an effort to raise funds to support student success at COCC. In 2020, this black-tie affair netted $320,000 for scholarships!

We are delighted to be honoring the Bend Foundation this year. The Bend Foundation's mission is to stimulate and enhance a thriving and creative community in Central Oregon. Established and funded by Brooks Scanlon, Brooks Resources and its shareholders, the Bend Foundation was originally formed in 1947 as a resource for injured loggers and mill workers, and to provide scholarships for industry workers. Over the years, the Bend Foundation has performed as a leader in our community by identifying and supporting key needs in an effort to maintain and improve the livability in Bend and throughout Central Oregon.
