Invest in Health to End Hunger

We can end hunger by investing in the health of our communities. All Oregonians—no matter our identity, the language we speak or where we’re from—should have access to nutritious food that supports our overall health.

When children and families don’t have access to essential resources like healthy food, it can lead to weakened immune systems, health challenges and, as a result, more expensive healthcare. And for Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), systemic racism and discrimination in care have lasting impacts on health and well-being.

It’s time to invest in our communities’ health—in nutritious food, quality healthcare and other essential resources so that all of us can thrive.

Vote out hunger. Invest in health.

Act now. End Hunger

The pandemic has shown us all how closely our health and well-being is tied to one another. Hunger is a symptom of harmful policies and systems that create barriers for people to thrive. We will emerge stronger when we address hunger together, as a community.

We can end hunger for good by tackling its root causes. We must act to address the inequality, racism and oppression that create serious disparities in public safety, employment, education, housing and healthcare.
