Everyone deserves good food.
We make it happen.
We make it happen.
HDFFA is made up of dedicated individuals that are passionate about our mission.
These individuals include our Staff, Board of Directors, Advisory Committee and volunteers.
We believe that individuals participating in our programs and community members interested in improving food security and farm and ranch viability should have the opportunity to provide feedback and become leaders in our work. With these values in mind, our Board of Directors and Agricultural Advisory Committee and Food Security Advisory Committee help inform our current work and build the leadership capacity for the future of farming, ranching, and food access in Central Oregon.
Our Board is comprised of volunteer citizens representing Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties and various food system sectors including:
farm, ranch, food businesses, hunger relief, community health, land use, local government, university and/or the community-at-large.
Co-Chairs: Jeff Baker & Jeff Fox | Secretary: Tracy Wilson | Treasurer: Jane Sabin-Davis
