Connecting, Strengthening and Scaling Food Supply Chains in the Northwest and Rocky Mountain Region

Sydney DeLuna

I have been a buyer, an advocate, and educator for local, sustainable, and regenerative agriculture both personally and professionally. I come to this work with a background in building and operating large kitchen facilities, as well as menu development and sourcing for local, source identified and sustainably produced foods. My understanding of food system work is layered and multi-dimensional, and I bring to my work technical skill, a strong understanding of sound business practices, a track record of implementation, deep knowledge of sales, scalability and access to market, and extensive experience with sustainable and equitable food production systems.

In recent years I have been working as an independent consultant (Luna Bird) for various community food system projects in the state of Oregon. Current roles include coordinating the Oregon Food Hub Network and leading a Regional Food Systems Partnership Planning grant on behalf of Oregon Community Food Systems Network, as well as serving as a co-lead for the Right Size Infrastructure theme of NW Rocky Mountain Regional Food Business Center. Prior projects include leading and coordinating the purchase, funding, and transition to cooperative ownership of a small regional food distributor, and work with Economic Development Districts in both Central Oregon and the North Coast of Oregon.
