Take action this September to fight child hunger
September 1, 2019 — September is Hunger Action Month, the nationwide effort to mobilize communities to take action on the issue of hunger.
Too many Oregonians experience hunger, which means they aren’t able to access or afford enough nutritious food. To eliminate hunger in Oregon, we must meet today’s needs and tackle tomorrow’s challenges.
At Oregon Food Bank, we believe that food and health are a basic human right for all. Yet even with the historic Student Success Act providing more lunches in schools beginning in 2020, it’s not enough to ensure that no child goes hungry.
Take action this September to fight child hunger. Together, we can end hunger. We eliminate hunger by helping children access nutritious food today; and building community power to ensure that all children have the opportunity to succeed in school, access quality health care, and for their families to afford safe, secure housing.
