When your views on the world and your intellect are being challenged and you begin to feel uncomfortable because of a contradiction you've detected that is threatening your current model of the world or some aspect of it, pay attention. You are about to learn something. This discomfort and intellectual conflict is when learning is taking place.

Oregon Food Bank (OFB) is a community-based 501 (c)(3), non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating hunger and its root causes… because no one should be hungry.

The challenge of collecting and distributing enough food to keep pace with need – 81 million pounds Network-wide last year -- has grown as sources of food shrink. In response to the down economy, food industry donations have dropped as retailers tighten inventory-to-sales ratio.  Outcomes: More food purchases, particularly bulk commodities such as rice, oats and beans. These provide nutrition for food boxes and serve as vital projects for growing volunteer numbers. The goal: processing 825,000 pounds of bulk commodities in the Volunteer Action Center. Increased collections through Fresh Alliance, the retail perishable food rescue program operated with several major grocery chains. The goal: 2.3 million pounds. Increased deliveries to Regional Food Banks to expedite movement of food into the system and, ultimately, into food boxes for hungry families.

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

When nothing seems to help, I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before.
