The latest statistics from "Children First for Oregon" -- show an additional 13-thousand children slipped into poverty.

 

In Deschutes County, more than half the district's public school children are eligible to receive free or redued school lunches.

 

Kate Moore with Deschutes County Public Health says the numbers show many people are still hurting.

 

"We're still experiencing some hard eocnomic times, so I think it's reflected in the many more chidren added to the Healthy Kids program.  It's good and bad news.  It's good news that more kids are enrolled in the program, but it's bad news their family's income qualified for the health insurance.  So we're still lagging behind many areas in our economic recovery."

 

23 percent of Oregon's children are living in poverty -- about 44 percent of the state's kids are either poor or low income.
