We're working diligently to bring more funding into the Local Food System in Lane County and strengthen existing programs. Sometimes the most impactful thing that we can do is make sure that the work other organizations are doing in our community is well-funded.

Trillium Community Health Plan Grant

In partnership with Trillium Community Health Plan, we are launching a 2-Year, $1M Project to Support Local Farmers and Food Banks, Increase Access to Healthy Food, and Improve Health Outcomes in Lane County!

Through a series of integrated initiatives, we are supporting 35,000-50,000 community members, as well as dozens of local farms and seven farmers markets with the following programs:
  • Bucks Bucka Bucks - dedicated funding for a $10 low barrier protein access program for chicken and egg purchases.
  • Little Lettuce Kids Market - dedicated funding for a $5 low barrier food access program for kids 12 years old and under to purchase fresh fruit, veggies, and edible plant starts at Farmers Markets in Lane County.
  • Double Up Food Bucks - dedicated funding for Farmers Markets in Lane County to maintain a $20 match for purchases made by EBT customers.
  • Farm to Food Bank - dedicated funding to pilot a direct purchasing program for Food For Lane County to make end-of-market-day purchases from farmers to boost their sales and redirect local food into rural food pantries.
Find them at the Florence Farmers Market, Spencer Creek Community Growers Market, Veneta Downtown Farmers Market, Whiteaker Community Market, Lane County Farmers Markets- Tuesdays only! (DUFB is available on Tuesdays & Saturdays), Oakridge Community Farmers Market, and South Valley Farmers Market!

Investing in our Local Food System creates a lasting impact in our community. Every dollar invested is maximized as it strengthens farmers, customers, and farmers markets in Lane County.
