Governor says amen to ending hunger in Oregon

Last month, Governor Ted Kulongoski made a “call for action” to expand summer food programs for students during the kick-off event at Parkrose High School for Oregon Hunger Awareness Week, a week devoted to increasing awareness about hunger, educating about the root causes of hunger, and calling on all Oregonians to help end hunger in their communities.

At the Parkrose High School event to speak were representatives from groups that focus on ending hunger in Oregon and students that have participated in programs to assist low-income families.

“Hunger isn’t just a rural or an urban issue, it’s an Oregon issue and we all have an obligation to do our part to ensure our children have access to the food they need to learn, play and grow,” Governor Kulongoski said.

The Summer food service Program was created to help provide full and balanced meals for children through age 18, who are eligible for free and reduced-priced breakfast and lunch during the summer.

“The proof we can make a difference when we work together is right here in Multnomah County, where, in one year, they (SFSP) have increased their participation in its program by 56 percent, the governor said. “I urge other communities to look at this model of success so we can continue to make progress in making sure our children and families don’t go hungry.”
