Welcome to the Food Web!
Our mission is to cultivate healthy communities and a vibrant economy through food and agriculture across the North Coast.
We collaborate with other organizations to magnify our impact through sharing best practices and collective problem solving. These partnerships ensure our work addresses the changing needs of our community and aid in making our programs and services more efficient and complimentary (less duplicative).
What we do
Our North Coast Online Farmers Market is a year round, local food market supporting small farmers and food makers within 100 miles of Astoria, Oregon. The market aims to increase local food accessibility for low-income community members through accepting SNAP (formally food stamps) and FDNP payments; offering a 50% discount on fresh produce purchased with SNAP; and a home delivery service with no fee for low-income customers. The Market currently supports 42 local food vendors and 500+ customers annually.
Our commercial kitchen is available for rent with highly discounted rates for local food businesses - with priority going to new food producers, people of color and renters identifying as low-income. This resource currently supports six businesses in developing and processing value-added food products.
We offer individualized food business support services to help beginning and small food businesses scale up to financial sustainability. These 1-on-1 services assist with packaging and food safety compliance, product pricing and marketing, navigating licensing and insurance and more. 35 food businesses were supported by this program in 2021.
