Common Table, a nonprofit restaurant in downtown Bend, will close Wednesday evening.
While running the restaurant, which provides free meals to low-income and homeless people from its revenues, is challenging enough, renovations under way in the building housing the Common Table would have forced it to shut down for four months, according to statements on the restaurant’s Facebook page and the Downtown Bend Business Association’s website. Common Table opened in fall 2010 on Northwest Oregon Avenue near Bond Street.
But the mission will continue, according to the statements. The Common Table steering committee and executive director are working on plans that will be released shortly, it said.
