2012 HARVEST OF HOPE HONOREES

CORNELIUS UNITED METHODIST CHURCH'S(CUMC) food pantry and migrant program run by Joanne Dempsey have made a difference in the lives of not only those in their community, but in the lives of many migrant workers and their families. They strive to offer a welcoming environment and work hard to reduce barriers to those who need food assistance.

MARK EDWARDS is an associate professor of sociology at Oregon State University, whose work has focused on food insecurity in Oregon for a number of years. His recent research has been used by nonprofit groups, state agencies, and the media addressing domestic hunger in the Northwest. He was one of the lead organizers of the Food Security Summit held at OSU earlier this year.

JENNY HOLMES, Director of EMO's Interfaith Network for Earth Concerns, and its Interfaith Food and Farms Partnership, has provided leadership in engaging faith communities in building local food systems that provide healthy food to all, support family farms and that care for Earth. From annual Earth Care Summits, Community Food Assessments, Farm to Congregation Partnerships, and other innovative projects she has helped many congregations to start or enhance their environmental ministries through food issues.

PHYLLIS WEARE created and still is the energizer behind Eugene's "Sunday Breakfasts," which are held twice a month at First Christian Church and twice a month at a rotating group of Congregations throughout the city. Over 200 people come for a free meal every Sunday. Phyllis initiated and is the primary organizer for the community garden at First Christian, which provides fresh produce for many in the congregation as well as for the "Sunday Breakfasts."
