FoFF’s 3rd Annual Portland Fill Your Pantry Was a Big Success! 

Fill Your Pantry is one-day community bulk buying event and a great opportunity to meet and support your local farmers. Held by food system non-profits in communities across Oregon each year, FoFF’s 3rd Annual Portland Fill Your Pantry was held on December 3, 2017 at The Redd on Salmon St.

Thanks to all the supporters who came out for this one day event! Hundreds of you attended and we collectively helped generate over $60,000 in sales that went directly into the pockets of 24 local farms & ranches! In case you missed this very fun event, check out some pictures here. We will post details about 2018 Fill Your Pantry events here when they are available.


2017 Squash Sagra Festival!

Also on December 3, 2017 and in conjunction with Portland Fill Your Pantry and the Culinary Breeding Network we co-hosted Oregon’s first Squash Sagra winter squash festival. This event included winter squash variety tastings, cooking demonstrations, and much more. Check out some photos from the 2017 Squash Sagra here and visit www.eatwintersquash.com for more info about this exciting festival, great winter squash recipes, and more!


About Fill Your Pantry

Fill Your Pantry is an annual bulk purchasing event organized by various local food system non-profits around Oregon. It is an excellent opportunity to purchase large quantities of staple and storage crops at great prices directly from local farmers at a time of the year when many farmers can really use the extra sales. In the fall of 2017, Fill Your Pantry events were held Portland, Eugene, Corvallis, Hood River and Central Oregon. 

Friends of Family Farmers has organized Fill Your Pantry in Portland since 2015 and held an inaugural Salem event in early 2017. Stay tuned for what’s in store for 2018!
