BedMart wants to raise funds and awareness to combat hunger in Oregon while helping the Sunshine Division better serve the community.

Many children rely on their school for two meals a day during the school year. Census experts pegged the child poverty rate in Oregon's largest school district, Portland Public Schools, at 18 percent and David Douglas at 31 percent in 2010. During the summer many children are faced with the reality of lacking up to 10 meals a week that they would have received at their school between September and early June. BedMart wants to raise funds and awareness to combat this reality while helping the Sunshine Division better serve the community and particularly children during the summer months because while these kids are on vacation, their need for food did not take one.
