October Sunday Assembly

 


Did you know that nearly 1 in 5 Oregonians report not having enough food to eat?  Join us as we examine hunger and food insecurity in our state and learn about local efforts to ensure that no one goes hungry.

 

Our October Assembly will focus on the state of hunger and food insecurity in Oregon with  speaker Christine Hadekel, the Statewide Education and Outreach Manager for the Oregon Food Bank. Her presentation will explore food insecurity in our state and what is being done to ensure everyone has access to fresh, healthy food. She will also discuss current food bank programs and initiatives that are part of the solution and highlight ways for the broader community to join the movement to end hunger. Christine’s multifaceted job includes managing a farm and garden education program, leading a statewide nutrition education program, and developing healthcare partnerships across Oregon.

 

Before moving to the Pacific Northwest, Christine advocated for food security policies in the European Union, developed garden-based learning programs in New York State, and managed agriculture and nutrition programs throughout sub-Saharan Africa and India. She has a Master of Public Administration (MPA) degree from Cornell University with a focus in sustainable food systems and a certificate in Ecological Horticulture from the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems at UC Santa Cruz. She is from Montreal, Canada and is currently in training to become a Buddhist Chaplain with the Upaya Zen Center.
