Summer is a challenging time for families who face food insecurity since many kids receive free or reduced meals at school. Oregon Food Bank works tirelessly with the community to get food to those in need.
In April we had a very successful Hunger Response Day at the Capitol. Oregon Food Bank Network clients wrote more than 1,000 messages on paper plates asking elected officials to make food a priotiy. This effort gained the attention of 76 state legislators and their staff members.
In June, Jadyn bravely shared his story of food insecurity. He did so in an effort to preserve support for food banks and programs like SNAP (food stamps) that ensure thousands of families, like his, have enough to eat. We thank Jadyn for his courage and candor.
Together we can make a difference in the lives of people in Oregon and Clark County, Washington. Thank you for your support.
