Take Action

Together, we are powerful beyond measure

Ending hunger starts with community power and a commitment to ending the unfair systems that create unequal access to food. Through organizing and advocacy, we are amplifying community voices, addressing the root causes of hunger — from racism to sexism to transphobia — and supporting policies that put social justice and equity first.

Join us to work toward a future of equality and abundance for all.

Build community power

We can end hunger for good when we organize and advocate together. Here are some ways you can get involved and help address the root causes of hunger and poverty. Join us!

Be a part of community-led change

If you have experienced hunger, you know that our community is often excluded from decisions and processes that affect our lives, friends and families. We are committed to creating new pathways for you to lead in building community power and rallying for real change.

Take our quick survey to let us know about the changes you want to see.

Join a movement for equity and justice

Hunger is not an individual experience. It’s a symptom of unfair systems that create barriers to employment, affordable housing and health care. Oregon Food Bank is building a movement for change and organizing support for policies that ensure all of us can thrive.
