About Us



North Coast Food Web cultivates a resilient and equitable food system by supporting producers and improving access to local food.

 Our Vision 


Our vision of a North Coast “food web” is a community that is home to a diverse and thriving group of farmers, fishermen, and foragers. These food producers have strong relationships with families, local businesses and organizations and are a pillar of our coastal economy. Healthy food is easier to access for all of us, regardless of who we are and our financial means. The connections made through the “web” contribute to the increased health and wellbeing we see in our community. 



North Coast Food Web (NCFW) was founded in 2011 born of the needs identified at the first FEAST (Food Education Agriculture Solutions Together) in Cannon Beach in 2009 that brought over 65 community members together to discuss food (in)security challenges in our region and to identify a path forward to a resilient community food system. On the heels of that event, the Clatsop County Food Assessment (CFA) created the road map which NCFW has been traveling.

NCFW builds relationships within the community including ones with volunteers, schools, families, Oregon Food Bank and its local subsidiary, Clatsop Community Action Regional Food Bank, OSU Extension, local governments, and other non-profit groups. These collaborations have helped us educate and engage children, families, and communities by building the skills to grow food, increase access to local agriculture, develop cooking and nutrition skills and encourage citizen involvement in the development of a healthy food system. Additionally, NCFW supports new and existing farmers, provides resources for food system entrepreneurs to succeed and is actively engaged in the community and economic development in our region.
