Oregon Community Food Systems Network website launched!

The Oregon Community Food Systems Network (OCFSN) is a collaboration by organizations throughout the state committed to local, regional and sustainable food systems development. With 40 signed member organizations, and applications by new members welcome, OCFSN is the place where Oregonians meet to build a better food system.

This website currently offers:

  • Information on OCFSN, including how to become a member.
