Making Local Happen in Central Oregon

The Central Oregon Food Summit will mark the transition from the research phase of our Community Food Assessment (CFA) process to action. The Central Oregon Community Food Assessment, launched in August 2009, is an initiative of Wy’East Resource Conservation & Development in partnership with NeighborImpact, the Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council and Oregon State University Extension Service.

The Community Food Assessment (CFA) provides tools to gather and document information and community input regarding food, farm and nutrition issues to inform future change actions towards increased food security.  Throughout this effort, the VISTA volunteer coordinated committees throughout the tri-county region of Deschutes, Crook, and Jefferson which included consumers, farmers, low-income individuals, planners, food businesses and institutions, governmental, private and non-profit organizations.  Through a collaborative process we have worked to incorporate every sector of the food industry.  We are proud to present this Food Summit as a way to move from the "talking" phase to the "doing" phase.

Your Voice Matters.

Everyone has a part in the food system.
