We envision an Oregon where everyone is healthy and thriving, with access to nutritious, affordable, and culturally-appropriate food.
On February 16, 2018—the Hunger-Free Oregon Day of Action—join Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon, along with the Oregon Hunger Task Force, in calling on the Legislature to build a hunger-free Oregon! We need your voice, your passion and your story to win meaningful change for the lives of people impacted by hunger and food insecurity. Registration is free, but you can make a donation to cover participation costs.
Breakfast, lunch and child care (with notification at least seven days in advance) will be provided.
Why should I register?
At the Hunger-Free Oregon Day of Action, you'll have a chance to meet with your Legislators and share with them why ending hunger is important to you. You'll meet other like-minded advocates and partner with them in calling for change. And, you'll learn more about issues facing Oregonians impacted by food insecurity and what you can do about it.
Join us to advocate for policies including:
- Paid Family Leave for Oregonians
- More affordable housing
- Improvements to the emergency food network
