The Hunger Prevention Partnership was formed in October 2000, after the first Portage County Hunger Summit. Over the years, the Partnership has grown. In April, at the 2006 Poverty Summit, the Partnership expanded to include poverty issues and the name of the organization was changed to Portage County Hunger and Poverty Prevention Partnership The Partnership includes individuals from various aspects of the public and private sector. The Partnership developed four project teams to help address and solve hunger and poverty issues that face Portage County .
