Real Money for Working Families – A Message from Our CEO

Greetings to you all!

We are looking to our friends, colleagues and partners to aid us in getting the word out regarding a key piece of legislation, HB 3028, that supports working people in our community through access to an earned income benefit credit. This credit is referred to as EITC (Earned Income Tax Credit) and is set to expire by 2020; HB 3028 supports continuation and expansion of this benefit.

Cooking Classes from MFS Hunger Relief Team

Last Thursday, MFS Hunger Relief programs held a Vietnamese cooking class at West Powellhurst, led by MFS Hunger Relief AmeriCorps member Thu Le, and two Vietnamese community members. They taught parents, students and volunteers how to make Vietnamese salad rolls and peanut sauce, sticky coconut rice, and a Vietnamese chicken and vegetable soup. 🥥🍲🍴

Each family took home a bag of healthy groceries and recipes! Thank you, Portland Children’s Levy for the support!

This is one of THIRTY healthy cooking workshops being held by the MFS Hunger Relief team at our SUN Schools!
