Each year, the Oregon Food Bank community gathers virtually for our ‘State of Hunger’ Address, a discussion of the latest on food insecurity in our communities, issues we're working on to address hunger at its roots, and ways each of us can get involved and make a difference. Set for August 31, the live-streamed event will begin with remarks from Oregon Food Bank CEO Susannah Morgan at 6:00 pm, followed by time to answer YOUR questions.
This year's virtual event also kicks off National Hunger Action Month — a time when people across the country volunteer, donate and advocate together in the fight to end hunger. And with the combined challenges we face and so many hunger-related issues on the ballot this fall, the need for action is as real as it's ever been.
2022 State of Hunger Address
with Oregon Food Bank CEO Susannah Morgan
Livestream Wednesday, August 31
remarks followed by a community Q&A
6:00 pm to 6:30 pm
We all know how challenging the last two years have been, and it’s no secret that our communities continue to face significant economic disruption in the wake of the pandemic — not to mention global food and fuel shocks. The combined pressure makes it even more difficult for families to make ends meet, a fact that’s worsening food insecurity here in the Pacific Northwest and across the country.
Yet we’ve met so many crises head-on, no matter how big or small, through the incredible support of this community. And it’s the hard work, dedication and love of this community that will ensure we all emerge stronger together. I hope to see you on August 31 to take our next steps together!
With love and hope,
Susannah Morgan, CEO
