Our Mission

The Dairy Creek Community Food Web, named for the Dairy Creek watershed, is an organization that strives to make connections within the local food system.

The DCCFW’s mission is to promote the local food community in Western Washington County by exchanging knowledge and resources to grow, process, share and celebrate food.

To do this, the DCCFW provides educational programming, facilitates food harvest and cooking and food preservation workshops, and hosts community celebrations to promote local vendors. Partnerships with local governments, businesses, landowners, growers, gardeners, farmers, educators, and social service providers are essential in the creation of a more just, inclusive, extensive food network. Current partners include the Forest Grove Grange, Adelante Mujeres, Community Matters, City of Forest Grove, FG/Cornelius Chamber of Commerce, Oregon Food Bank, Meals On Wheels People, FG/Banks, faith community members, Family Resource Center, B St Permaculture Farm, Pacific University and the Forest Grove Senior & Community Center.

We envision a thriving food community in which all residents have the opportunity to grow, prepare and consume local food in order to support the health of the land and its people.

    • Hi Natalie!

      We don’t have a formal membership, just a network of people who love food. The best way to become a part of the network is to attend one of our events, and put your name on our listserve there. If you have ideas for how we can grow our food community, whether it’s through an event, a program, a workshop, etc… please let us know! You can also email me at roun6188@pacificu.edu with more questions/ideas.
      Best,
      O
