The SUN Service System (SUN) Child and Family Hunger Relief work began in Summer of 2010 with the support of the Multnomah County Board of County Commissioners.

SUN Hunger Relief:

  • Addresses the food and nutrition needs of SUN Community Schools (SUN CS) through SUN CS food pantries and SUN CS Harvest Share sites (in partnership with Oregon Food Bank)
  • Partners with school districts & nutrition services leaders to increase access to free or low-cost school-year and summer meals programs
  • Convenes the Multnomah County Child Hunger Coalition, which is a group of nonprofit, government, and community members tackling the root causes of hunger families experience in our county 
  • With Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon, convenes the Multnomah County Summer Meals Workgroup
