Hunger, once again, is on the rise in Oregon and southwest Washington. The most recent U.S. Department of Agriculture hunger report, analyzing Census Bureau data, shows Oregon's food insecurity and hunger rates increased significantly. Oregon now holds the unenviable position of having the second-highest hunger rate in the nation. In these challenging times, we are especially grateful for your heart-warming generosity. In December 2009, we were able to purchase 12,000 pounds of most needed foods due to your contributions. Thank you.
