Hi, I’m Meg Mercier (they/them). I’m a farmworker at Sungrounded Farm in Terrebonne, and I assist Friends of Family Farmers with organizing work in Central Oregon. I’ve worked in the foodservice industry for many years and began farming after doing an AmeriCorps VISTA service term with the Rio Grande Farm Park in Alamosa, Colorado. Growing up in a home in which I faced food insecurity, I find this committee’s purpose quite meaningful. I’m looking forward to learning more about how HDFFA works to address this issue in Central Oregon.
