2014 Food Security Summit
Join us for an exciting and engaging Food Security Summit on October 21. The event, titled "Hungry for Change: New Thinking and Emerging Themes in Our Work to End Hunger," aims to change the conversation around hunger by shaking up assumptions, and to re-energize Oregonians involved in anti-hunger work. The morning sessions' themes revolve around farm worker/grower perspectives, hunger as a health issue, and the social justice implications of hunger.
New partners are encouraged to join in this discussion. The summit is hosted by Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon, Oregon Food Bank, Oregon Hunger Task Force, and OSU.
