Everyone deserves good food.
We make it happen.

HDFFA is made up of dedicated individuals that are passionate about our mission.

Much like a food system – an interconnected web of human activities that gets food from the farm to your plate – our team works in collaboration with each other.  This includes our staff, board of directors, and advisory committee members.  As part of our culture and our mission, we integrate diversity, equity and inclusion to both foster a resilient food system and promote a culture of belonging and dignity.   We operate with open and inquisitive minds so that, together, we can grow and flourish with our community.

We encourage everyone to become leaders in our food system.


Board Members

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-Chair: Tracy Wilson  |  Co-Chair: Corbin Serano  |  Treasurer: Jane Sabin-Davis | Secretary: Christine Thomas

Advisory Committees

HDFFA has two Advisory Committees: Agricultural Advisory Committee and Food Security Advisory Committee.  These committees are composed of volunteers, program beneficiaries, and farm and food access organizations.  The purpose is to advise our Team on the direction and success of our programs and specific projects including educational events, workshops, and grant objectives that best meet the needs and interests of our beneficiaries.  To learn more, click on the links above or go to our volunteer page.
