The fundraiser scheduled for Saturday, March 14th in Pacific City has been postponed due to the coronavirus public health concern
PACIFIC CITY, OR, (March 10, 2020) — Food Roots has announced the postponement of the 6th Annual South County Pie Night fundraiser originally scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 14th at the Kiawanda Community Center in Pacific City.
Given Governor Brown’s recent emergency declaration and recommendations from public health authorities about the novel coronavirus in Oregon, the four Tillamook area nonprofits hosting this event–Food Roots, Pacific City Farmers Market, the Neskowin Farmers Market, and the South County Food Pantry–have decided to postpone the event to a later date to be determined.
While challenging, this decision has been made to help ensure the health and safety of our coastal community. Current plans are for South County Pie Night to take place at a future date in later spring. The date will be determined once event organizers are confident they can conduct a large public gathering without any undue risk to public health.
Food Roots Development Director, Joel Caris, commented that “While we are disappointed about the postponement, we are hopeful and appreciative of the community’s understanding and support. We love our coastal community and want to prioritize the health of our supporters and all community members.”
Food Roots, the Pacific City Farmers Market, the Neskowin Farmers Market, and the South County Food Pantry thank everyone for their understanding and apologize for this inconvenience. They thank all the sponsors, pie bakers, volunteers, and community members who have provided support for this event and look forward to a future rescheduling of South County Pie Night.
