Need help starting a program in your community?

Since 2009, Partners For a Hunger-Free Oregon has provided small grants to new or expanding summer meal programs in Oregon through the Summer Meals Support Fund.
Now in its tenth year, we have provided small grants and technical assistance to over 150 unique organizations, awarding over $720,000.

Grants are awarded up to $5,000 per program. Grant funds support new and existing programs with equipment purchases, staffing, transportation costs, and activity and outreach supplies.In addition to financial support, we strive to work one-on-one with grant recipients to promote best practices, raise awareness, and provide technical assistance and/or support throughout the state.


“Grant County might be small but we have a lot of mouths to feed. Without these funds we would not be able to help fight hunger in Oregon and make sure no kid goes without summer meals.”
