We envision resilient communities throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington that never go hungry.
Hunger is not just an empty stomach or an individual experience. Hunger is a community wide symptom of exclusion, of not having enough – not having enough nutritious food, enough income, enough power, enough represented voice. Hunger is a symptom of barriers to employment, education, housing and healthcare.
We all experience the effects of hunger in our communities. But together we can build communities that never go hungry. We can build communities where every voice matters. We can build communities that share responsibility for each other and the common good. Because, when we share prosperity, we all benefit.
To achieve this bold vision, Oregon Food Bank will foster community connections to help people access nutritious food today, and we will build community power to eliminate the root causes of hunger, for good.
