I’m very happy to announce that Representative Earl Blumenauer (OR-3) will be at next Wednesday’s (8/8) meeting of the Oregon Faith Roundtable Against Hunger (OFRAH) in Portland to discuss the farm bill, and its impact on hunger. I hope you’ll be able to join us…

As you’ve probably heard by now, the House passed its version of the farm bill late last week, and now we’re turning our attention to the Senate. At the meeting, hear Congressman Blumenauer’s reaction, and learn about actions people of faith can take as the Senate prepares for debate in September. Congressman Blumenauer has been a tireless advocate for reforms in the farm bill that would reduce hunger in America and around the world.

OFRAH was formed in 2003 with the goal of bringing religious voices together to conduct direct service and develop solutions to hunger through education and public policy. Bread for the World has been working with OFRAH all year to make the case to our lawmakers that hunger needs to be a top priority in the bill.

Also joining us at the OFRAH meeting will be Dory Horn, Director of Care to Share. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn about efforts to reduce hunger and poverty locally through direct service efforts.

I hope you’ll be able to make it, and please forward this to your fellow churchgoers, pastors, friends, family – anyone who believes that we have a moral obligation to end hunger.

Thank you very much. To learn more about the farm bill, and why it’s a significant piece of please visit our website at
