Take Action


Lack of food and economic security are urgent problems facing the people we serve. We must continue to address them and we must also join together to push back against the lack of awareness and misunderstandings that allow hunger to persist. Change starts with communication and understanding.

With your assistance the Oregon Food Bank Network responds with urgency to deliver food to those in need every day. We also need your help to close the spaces between us and break down the walls that prevent us from realizing we’re all in this together.

We can end hunger in this state and across this country. Hunger is everyone’s problem, not just those experiencing it today. Make the choice to get involved...because no one should be hungry.

How you can help:

  • Share these stories with your friends and colleagues.
  • Counteract myths about people in poverty when you hear them.
  • Volunteer at or donate to your local food pantry, meal site, or food bank.
  • Advocate for changes to the policies and structures that keep people trapped in poverty.
