20 Grants Pass restaurants join ‘Say Cheese’ fundraiser for Josephine County Food Bank

GRANTS PASS, Ore. – “Say Cheese” is back! This month, 20 Grants Pass restaurants are selling grilled cheese sandwiches and donating part of the proceeds to help fight hunger.

For every grilled cheese purchased from participating restaurants, $2 will be given to the Josephine County Food Bank.

To cap it all off, you can pick up a punch card from participating restaurants for a chance to win a $100 Dutch Bros gift card. Once you buy five sandwiches, you can drop off the card at any of the restaurants listed below this article to be entered into the drawing.

When the event ends on March 31, the restaurant with the most sales will get bragging rights for having the “Best Grilled Cheese in Grants Pass.”

The food bank has been doing the contest for several years now. To learn more or vote for your favorite grilled cheese sandwich, visit https://www.jocofoodbank.org/news
