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].

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!

Speak Up

You are powerful. Add your voice to our campaigns to create a Hunger-Free Oregon.


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, strengthen our food system and increase access to the food assistance safety net on the local, state and federal levels.

Current Actions

Take Action: Stop Trump’s Cruel Attack on Immigrant Families

Everyone has the right to be free from hunger. But the Trump Administration’s latest proposal would radically re-define who has access to the American Dream by scaring away documented immigrants from seeking access to  programs for which they’re legally eligible: health care (Medicaid), nutrition (SNAP) and housing. This rule is not final and we have a chance to stop it. The public comment period for this cruel regulation is open through December 10. We cannot stand idly by.

Tell Congress to reject a farm bill that punishes Oregonians seeking work

The Farm Bill proposal emerging from the U.S. House would punish Oregonians struggling to make ends meet and takes away food assistance from millions of struggling households nationwide. It would end the traditional bipartisan nature of the Farm Bill. Instead of taking away grocery money from low-income parents and seniors to pay for new risky schemes, we urge Congress to focus on policies that help create jobs, boost wages, and reduce hunger.

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.

Here’s some things we’re working on leading up to the 2019 session:

Hunger-Free Schools: Every child deserves a healthy start in life. School meals help kids learn, grow, and thrive. The Hunger-Free Schools Campaign seeks to develop policy recommendations and win legislative change in 2019.

Renew and Raise the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC): Along with the Child Tax Credit, the EITC lifts 129,000 Oregonians out of poverty each year. But it could do even more. Oregon matches 8% of the federal credit (and 11% for families with kids under 3), and Oregon has the opportunity to raise that amount and lift more working families out of poverty in the 2019 session.

Federal Policy

We advocate to protect and strengthen federal anti-hunger programs like SNAP, WIC, and School Meals. Read our response to the House Farm Bill proposal that would punish people looking for work.
