Summary

This project aims to increase the supply of nutrient rich foods for over 945 relief agencies throughout the Oregon Food Bank Network.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Requests for emergency food are skyrocketing because of rising costs of food and basic necessities and the economic downturn. According to the USDA, Oregon is ranked third in the nation for "very low food security" the term used to describe those households that skipped meals or reduced their food intake to make ends meet. All monies will be used to buy nutrient packed food for the Oregon Food Bank Network because no one should be hungry.

How will this project solve this problem?

If we can purchase and distribute nutrient rich foods, ie. peanut butter and tuna, throughout the network's 945 local partner agencies, we can increase the number of people who are food secure.

Potential Long Term Impact

People who are hungry can't excel at work, as parents or as students. Emergency food is an income supplement that frees up scarce resources to cover more of life's basic necessities.
