Mission/
Specific Program Goals:
Oregon Food Bank's Learning Gardens Growing our future ... because no one should be hungry Oregon Food Bank's two Learning Gardens offer programs to address the root causes of hunger through increased nutrition, self-reliance and community food security. Goals include reducing the root causes of hunger, increasing the number of residents who grow a portion of their own food, supporting development and retention of Oregon's growers and reducing the number of at-risk youth who will use emergency food as adults. OFB's two Learning Gardens are vibrant gathering spaces that bring the community together to grow vegetables, relationships and hope.
