Fresh n’ Local Foods is a locally owned and operated company located in Salem, Oregon since 2007. We started our business with a passion to increase the quality of food and the sourcing of local ingredients in schools. We now serve Boys and Girls Clubs, Meal on Wheels, School Districts in Oregon and Washington, Private Schools, Charter Schools, Head Start Programs, and After Care Programs.
Salem-Keizer Public Schools is continuing distribution of free grab-n-go meals (breakfast and lunch) for any child or teen ages 1-18 years old, and anyone with special needs 21 years old or younger throughout the summer break.
Meals include a variety of items like cereal, milk, fruit, vegetables, sandwiches, chicken nuggets, hamburgers or chicken patties. All foods are fully cooked and safe to eat immediately or reheat.
We also provide families with food boxes in partnership with Marion-Polk Food Share. See more information about distribution of food boxes.

We miss our audience and friends. And just so you don’t forget us, we thought we’d offer a free community screening via the internet!
This will be our first experiment with streaming a film, so there are some steps you need to follow. Of course, we prefer to show the film in the Historic Grand Theatre, but we can’t do that right now.
About the documentary:
Before starting a family, Soozie Eastman, daughter of an industrial chemical distributor, embarks on a journey to find out the levels of toxins in her body and explores if there is anything she or anyone else can do to change them.
With guidance from world-renowned physicians and environmental leaders, interviews with scientists and politicians, and stories of everyday Americans, Soozie uncovers how we got to be so overloaded with chemicals and undertakes dietary and lifestyle changes, including making informed product choices designed to manage and minimize her toxic body burden.
The Italian tenor will be accompanied only by the cathedral organist, Emanuele Vianelli. He is scheduled to perform sacred pieces such as “Ave Maria” and “Sancta Maria,” Universal Music Group said in a news release.
Universal Music Group is working with the City of Milan, the Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo, Sugar Music and YouTube to put on the virtual concert.
“This year, Easter will be very different for all of us,” Giuseppe Sala, the mayor of Milan, said in a statement. “The joyous serenity that usually comes with this day, has been greatly troubled by the pandemic we are experiencing. I am sure that the extraordinary voice of Bocelli will be the embrace we are missing these days, a strong, special hug, capable of warming the heart of Milan, Italy and the world.”
Bocelli is doing this pro-bono, according to the release.
Separate from the Easter concert, the musician’s foundation has raised more than $140,000 for hospitals in his home country of Italy, which has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. He is also scheduled to perform in the “One World: Together At Home” benefit concert on April 18.
Bocelli said regardless of people’s faith, he hopes Sunday’s concert will bring together “millions of clasped hands everywhere in the world.”
The Our Salem project started last year with a look at existing conditions and how Salem could grow under current policies. That first phase resulted in a report card that evaluated whether Salem is headed in the right direction.

At the workshops, hear what community members have said about their vision for Salem, and share your feedback on different scenarios for future growth. The general content of each of the workshops will be the same.
The workshops are part of the community-wide visioning we began last year. We will have more opportunities to provide input throughout this year.
Fall Workshops and Online Input
Thank you to everyone who participated in our fall workshops and online mapping exercises! You can check out the input we received on the project website.
The Our Salem project is a multi-year project to update the Salem Area Comprehensive Plan, which guides future development in the Salem area. Salem is expected to add 60,000 people by 2035. With this growth comes the chance to better plan for how and where we want to grow.
The Our Salem project started in 2018 with a look at existing conditions and how Salem could grow under current policies. That first phase resulted in a report card that evaluated whether Salem is headed in the right direction. Check out this story map to see what we did and what we learned.
