Community Nutrition Website Review Assignment
For this week’s Engagement Activity, you will be reviewing the Oregon Food Bank, which provides a source of food support and free or low-cost meals or meals for the elderly, or opportunities to grow food.
After you complete your website research you will write a short paper (roughly 250-500 words) that addresses what you learned from the website including:
Target population (who they serve)
Community setting (where are they located (e.g. the town, state, in a neighborhood, school, etc.)
How the organization/program serves the target population.
How the organization/program is funded (e.g., government (state/federal/local funds); non-profit (e.g., sliding scale, donations); private (e.g. for profit)
How it relates to community nutrition within the context of the social ecological model.
If there is an advocacy component that the organization states, they participate in.
Why you chose this organization or program.
From what you learned in the CIP Food Justice Case Study Report, would you say this organization falls only under food charity or also leans towards food justice? Explain.
In approximately 100 words or less, what additional information do you wish you could have found out about the organization?
