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.

The Oregon Food Bank Network is asking people who received food from a pantry to check their cupboards for recalled boxes of General Mills Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios. General Mills says the boxes being recalled may contain an undeclared allergen – wheat – which could cause adverse health effects for some people. More information on the recall and code dates are detailed in this press release from General Mills.

While negotiating a funding bill involves many complex and politically challenging policy issues, cutting SNAP funding cannot be one of them.
