Monday marked the first anniversary of the grass-roots organization “Dignity & Dining” program, founded by Jerry Atlansky in Estacada, Oregon. The program feeds the needy in restaurants, seeking to fill the unmet needs of the community. Organizers are proud that after a very successful one year in operation at three restaurants -- two in Estacada and one in Sandy, Oregon -- they are now prepared to expand the service throughout the United States.
Shorty’s Corner Café in Sandy, Oregon also learned of the program from a news article and became the third participating restaurant.
The organization provides free listings for all participating restaurants which include directions. Visit www.dignityanddining.org to see why restaurant owners are appreciative of the community’s support in making this a permanent program.
Atlansky invites all restaurant owners or companies to contact him for more information, or to join the program. He can be reached at 503.630.3681, ext. 2006, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by visiting the program’s web site at www.dignityanddining.org.
