Speak Up

You power this movement. Join us and take action for liberation.


Advocacy is the most effective way to eliminate hunger and poverty in Oregon. We support and advocate for public policy that will increase economic stability, increase access to the food assistance safety net, and further the liberation of people from poverty on the local, state and federal levels.

State Policy

We advocate at the Oregon Capitol in Salem to uphold every Oregonians’ right to be free from hunger. Recognizing that hunger disproportionally affects people of color, women, kids, renters, college students and people in rural areas, we encourage the legislature to seize opportunities to create a path toward an equitable and hunger-free Oregon.

Current Actions

Food for All Oregonians, SB610

Food for all Oregonians is a state-wide legislative campaign to expand food assistance benefits to those excluded on the basis of immigration status. Oregon Food Bank and Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon, along with a coalition of 65+ organizations, have introduced a bill in the 2023 legislative session to create a state-funded program that ensures everyone in Oregon has access to the food we need. This game-changing policy will:

  • Make food assistance available to all Oregonians who are currently excluded due to immigration status.
  • Provide families with money for groceries that matches federal SNAP food assistance benefits.
  • Ensure everyone is aware of this vital support through community navigation and outreach, improved language access and more.

How can I get involved?

Universal School Meals, HB3030

As part of our Hunger-Free Schools campaign, Hunger-Free Oregon authored an audacious bill that would provide free school meals to all K-12 students in Oregon. This bill underwent major revision before being added to the 2019 Student Success Act, resulting in the passage of a comprehensive set of school meal policies that made free school meals available to more students. For the 2023 session, multiple Senators and Representatives have taken up the torch and are sponsoring a bill that would make the school meal program truly universal.

Oregon Hunger Task Force, SB419

The Oregon Hunger Task Force was created by the State Legislature in 1989 (ORS 458.532) to act as a resource within government and as a statewide advocate for Oregonians who are hungry or at risk of hunger. Our most noncontroversial bill of the session, this is simply asking for the task force to be allowed to continue their vital advocacy efforts.

Federal Policy

We advocate to protect and strengthen federal anti-hunger programs like SNAP, WIC, and School Meals. Information on the status of current federal rules around food security is available below.
