PHFO and the Master Gardeners Association present "A Place At The Table"
In response to Governor Kitzhaber’s March 12 direction to state agencies to continue the "Heat and Eat” program
Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon works closely with national advocacy partners to achieve federal-level policy changes that can help Oregonians put food on the table. A few policies that play a large role in addressing and preventing hunger are:
- The Food, Farm & Jobs Bill (aka The Farm Bill). Provides funding for SNAP (the food stamp program).
- The Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act (aka Child Nutrition Reauthorization). Provides funding for child meal programs (school meals, Summer Food, WIC, etc.)
- TANF Block Grant Reauthorization: Provides block grants to states to assist very-low-income families with children through TANF.
