Understanding hunger in Oregon

Each month, nearly a quarter million Oregonians ate meals from emergency food boxes provided by the Oregon Food Bank network. Last year, the network moved a record 72 million pounds of food to hungry people. Who are these Oregonians? Are their numbers growing? Are the resources available to meet this growing need?

This week on Voices from the Edge, Jo Ann and Dave speak with Rachel Bristol, CEO of the Oregon Food Bank about understanding hunger in Oregon and how we reduce the number of Oregonians going to bed hungry each night. Laura Golina de Lovato, Oregon Food Bank's development director, will also join the conversation to talk about the upcoming Waterfront Blues Festival, the Oregon Food Bank's largest annual fundraiser (And don't forget that KBOO will be broadcasting the festival live July 1-4).

Jo Ann Bowman is a former state legislator, former executive director of Oregon Action and past board president of Portland Community Media as well as a long-time leader in the struggle for racial and economic justice. Dave Mazza is a freelance journalist and former editor of The Portland Alliance who has covered and been involved in Portland's civil rights, environmental, labor and peace movements for over 20 years
