Abstract
  • In 2003 the US Census Bureau found that 11.2% of the United States population was food insecure at some time during the year. The curious nature of such statistics only increases when we shift our gaze to the state of Oregon. This state enjoys a temperate climate and good farmland, especially in the rich Willamette Valley. Agriculture was once the major economic sector of the state, though now it has lost its status to more urban-based high-tech industries. Oregon ranked as the 15th poorest state in 2000, but during that same year, it had the highest percentage of people who reported being hungry. This information started a flurry of research, trying to understand the nature of food insecurity and hunger in the state. In this paper, we first outline our methodology and give an overview of two targeted communities. The next section deals with the intersection of food and identity. The following sections look more closely at how people become food insecure.
