Oregon Food Bank works to eliminate hunger and its root causes ... because no one should be hungry.

OFB works with a cooperative, statewide network of partner agencies to distribute emergency food to hungry families. We fight hunger's root causes through public policy advocacy, nutrition and garden education and work to strengthen community food systems.

Dawn's Story

December 19, 2014

“I went to my doctor and he told me I am pre-diabetic and that I needed to eat healthier and lose weight,” said Dawn, a local nutrition education graduate. “My husband and I used to eat out a lot but since he’s the only one working right now, we need to save money.”

Volunteers who teach nutrition education courses at Oregon Food Bank say many of the participants face similar issues. Nutrition education classes meet once a week for six weeks and are designed to challenge food preferences and habits. Along with cooking methods, nutrition, and food safety, students take a tour of a local grocery store where they learn practical shopping and meal planning. These skills combined increase food security and quality of life.
