The Oregon Child Development Coalition (OCDC) improves the lives of migrant farmworker families across the state of Oregon through the provision of childcare and educational programming. Over time, OCDC has expanded their operations to meet additional needs, such as food insecurity. This report seeks to highlight the efforts OCDC has made to reduce hunger. After presenting the state of food insecurity in Oregon and outlining OCDC’s history and structure, three strategies the organization has used to expand their anti-hunger work are highlighted: food security screening, on-site resources, and community partnerships. The report concludes with recommendations to strengthen these efforts.
