How to take action

Connect with local farms and food producers in the Willamette Valley and surrounding areaMany people helped make our first Food Meet happen.

Many conversations have already started, and are continuing. Projects around food and eating are underway. Below are some contacts if you'd like to join in those conversations or help get them going.

Also, as a way of saying thank you to the many farmers and vendors who came out and who give to this community, let's connect with these local farmers and food producers. Below are some links that will help you make those connections.
