Presentation Transcript
  • Introductions and Background
  • Panel:
    • Hannah Ancel, Community Food System Coordinator, ACCESS Inc, Medford
    • Spencer Masterson, Community Resource Developer, Oregon Food Bank
  • Formal FEAST Follow-up Options
  • Q & A
about the feast model
About the FEAST model
  • FEAST was developed as a response to the need to help communities move to action around community food systems work.
  • These events are organized by a local steering committee and feature local organizations
  • A FEAST convenes a conversation that leads to a self-determined organizing plan for food systems work in the community
  • Currently, OFB staff serve as facilitators, provide suggestions, feedback and support, but do not direct the outcomes.
