Thank you, Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon!

Special thank you to Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon for coordinating a fun Summer Meals kickoff party at the Human Solutions' Family Center this past Friday.

Thanks also to Portland Timbers and U.S. Men’s National Team midfielder, Darlington Nagbe, who stopped by and enjoyed a healthy summer lunch with kids at Human Solutions' Family Center. Organizers served a free meal as part of the Summer Food Service Program to about 85 kids from Human Solutions' Family Center and two other nearby Home Forward affordable housing communities.

Thousands of kids around the state depend on free or reduced lunch during the school year.  Now that school is out for summer, families can check out summerfoodoregon.org for free meals for kids at sites around the state!

Summer Meals for Kids

Human Solutions recognizes the importance of summer meals for kids. That’s why we work with our partners to provide summer lunch’s at eight of our housing complexes. The lunches are provided by the Centennial, Reynolds and Gresham Barlow School Districts. We also received a grant from Partnership for a Hunger Free Oregon to support staffing costs. We provide parents and teens living in the complexes stipends to help serve lunches and organize fun activities for children. Last year, we served nearly 10,000 lunches, and expect to exceed that number this year.
