The Clean Power Plan, a nationwide policy to protect the climate through increased use of clean energy, is being threatened by Congress. Don't let them put your health and your children’s future at risk!
From 2010 to 2014, Oregon PSR partnered with Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) to host and implement their Healthy Food in Health Care (HFHC) Program here in Oregon. That program continues in Oregon but is no longer hosted by Oregon PSR. Following is an archive of the Oregon Program during that time.

The way our food is produced, distributed and consumed has significant impacts on the health of the environment, communities and individuals. Unsustainable agricultural practices contribute to air, water and soil pollution, climate change, and a loss of biodiversity. Producing food ideal for shipping long distances rather than immediate consumption may impact the nutrient density of the foods we eat as well as further contribute to environmental and public health degradation from carbon emissions.
Urge the Army Corps to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement to assess the potential human health and environmental consequences of shipping 360,000 barrels of oil each day down the Columbia River.
