GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Restaurants all around Grants Pass will soon be offering their unique take on an old favorite—the grilled cheese sandwich. Each sale of a grilled cheese sandwich from any one of the participating restaurants will see $2 donated to the Josephine County Food Bank.
To sweeten the deal for hungry restaurant-goers, the Food Bank will also offer several contests. Punch cards can be picked up from any one of the participating restaurants. Purchasing five grilled cheese sandwichs from any of the participants and getting the card filled out will enter the bearer into a drawing for a $100 Fred Meyer gift certificate.
Grilled cheese-buyers can also take a selfie with their sandwish, post it to Facebook with the hashtag #saycheeseGP, and be entered into a drawing for a $100 Dutch Bros gift certificate.
