23 Food Sharing Projects That Are Disrupting Hunger | Sustainable Nutrition | Scoop.it
Food is one of our most basic needs. And yet, for over 800 million people, food insecurity remains a daily issue. While top-down programs that address hunger certainly exist, more efficient, immediate solutions are sometimes found on the community level, where neighbors directly help neighbors. We’ve rounded up 23 food projects that are transforming communities by feeding the hungry, educating people about healthy eating and food justice issues, and providing opportunities for people to grow their own food.

Time to solve hunger. (This alum's life's work)

Time to solve hunger. (This alum's life's work) | Sustainable Nutrition | Scoop.it

USF alum Patti Whitney-Wise has been working her entire life to eradicate hunger. As 2014 dawns, she said it is time for all of us to knuckle down and do something about poverty and hunger in Oregon.

 

“As we enter the new year, it is a good time to have a public conversation. There really is a role for every person to help end hunger,” she said.

 

Whitney-Wise, a resident of Milwaukie since 1996, is executive director of Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon, a nonprofit that raises awareness about hunger, connects people to nutrition programs and advocates for changes to end hunger before it begins.
