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. Friends of Family Farmers has organized Fill Your Pantry in Portland since 2015.

FoFF’s 3rd Annual Portland Fill Your Pantry was held on December 3, 2017 at The Redd on Salmon St. Hundreds of supporters 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.
