We work with partners across the state to prevent hunger in Oregon.

Annual Report

A message from Jaz and Sarah:

We are deeply grateful to have joined this organization at such a pivotal moment—for our team, our community, and the movement we’re building together. When we stepped into our roles as Co-Executive Directors, we joined a powerful legacy of folks achieving big wins for the food justice movement in Oregon.

At the same time, we are dreaming forward to the next phase of our work. Long-term, we envision a food system where farms are owned by the communities they feed. We see a future where small food producers can thrive while growing abundant, sustainable food. In this future, that food stays in our local communities. It nourishes kids through universal free school meals, and it provides accessible, affordable groceries for individuals and families.

Together, we are building this future. And it’s going to take each and every staff and board member, partner, advocate, donor, and supporter to get there. Here’s to continuing our shared work to end hunger.

Food For All

We are proud to have envisioned and activated the Food for All Oregonians campaign, which will expand food assistance benefits to those currently excluded on the basis of immigration status.

The campaign built a powerful movement of immigrant justice and values-aligned Oregon communities who believe that everyone in Oregon should have access to food, no matter where they were born.

Strategic Plan

We have a strong track record of influencing public policies to lift people out of poverty. Every year, we help connect thousands of children to healthy meals year-round and provide information to tens of thousands of Oregonians about SNAP. We train and equip local partners to find solutions to hunger in their own communities. We convene the formidable experts of the Oregon Hunger Task Force for collective action.

In developing our strategic plan, we heard from dozens of partners, volunteers and people we serve about how to best increase food security over the next two years.

The result was a clear set of objectives and a focus on two goals: pursuing equity, and building the anti-hunger movement.

In our pursuit of equity and justice, we reaffirm the founding declaration of the Oregon Hunger Task Force that “all persons have the right to be free from hunger” and recommit to work on behalf of those disproportionately denied that right. In the next two years, this means digging into the root causes of hunger, like racism, and shifting the way we advocate to include the leadership of those most impacted.

We appreciate the many supporters who help us achieve our mission and look forward to partnering with you!
