Filling Empty Plates – Hunger Prevention Coalition
“Formed in 2000, the Hunger Prevention Coalition is operated by volunteers who are passionate about making nutritious food available to all. Our partner agencies, selected once each year, are chosen based on their ability to prove that they will serve anyone in need and will direct our support to purchase items that increase the nutritional value of the meals or food boxes distributed.”
Robin Popp, HPC Board President is our luncheon speaker. “Robin Popp has served on the Hunger Prevention Coalition (HPC) Board since 2003. Robin received her BS in Political Science and worked in the non-profit field for 25+ years and during that tenure became passionate about people in need for nutritious food solutions. HPC is an organization that addresses that need in a positive and respectful manner. Robin enjoys gardening, sewing, hiking, camping and XC skiing, has served on the Oregon State Workforce Board, Siskiyou County School Board, National Workforce Alliance and various regional nonprofit organizations.”
Also worth noting is our very dedicated LWV member and past President, Marie Gibson, holds the position of Treasurer for HPC!
