We hope you’ll join us at a future event!

Hunger-Free Schools Day of Action

Raise your voice for Universal School Meals at the Hunger-Free Schools Day of Action!

Every student, classroom, teacher, and community is better off when kids start the school day well-nourished and ready to learn. We need YOUR voice, YOUR passion and YOUR story to win meaningful change addressing hunger in our schools!

At the Hunger-Free Schools Day of Action, you’ll meet with your legislators and share with them why expanding access to school meals is important to you. You’ll join with other advocates and partner with them in calling for change. And most importantly, you’ll be connected to a circle of advocates who also want to make meaningful change in our communities and schools.

THIS EVENT IS FREE! Registration includes breakfast, lunch, and childcare (when you register at least one week in advance). A carpool will be arranged to and from Portland. Contact Alison Killeen for more details at [email protected].

Thursday, April 18 | Oregon State Capitol Building | Salem, Oregon | 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Bake to End Hunger

Bake to End Hunger is a food tasting event featuring local renowned chefs and restaurants coming together in support of ending hunger.

In 2018, we celebrated at the Portland Art Museum with more than two dozen chefs who made incredible sweet (and some savory!) treats for us all to taste. We also raffled off cakes and pies to lucky winners!

Thank you to all of our sponsors, vendors, and attendees. Special thanks to our partner Elephant’s Delicatessen, sponsors Shepherd’s Grain and Franz Bakery, and in-kind sponsors Feastly, Willamette Week, and Artful Venues.

Child Hunger Prevention Conference

Each year, we bring together people working in schools and community organizations to focus on how to prevent child hunger and support child nutrition programs.

In 2017, more than 80 partners from around the state joined us to learn about how to strengthen programs connecting kids and families to nutrition. Leaders from across the state met each other and learned from peers about best practices and innovative strategies. The conference was held at Chehalem Cultural Center.

Thank you to our sponsor Oregon Dairy and Nutrition Council for helping us bring keynote speaker Dayle Hayes!
