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

Lauren Gwin

Oregon State University

I am OSU’s first Extension Specialist in Community Food Systems and lead the Center for Small Farms & Community Food Systems at Oregon State University. My own work focuses on local and regional food sector infrastructure and value chains, sustainable, equitable, community-driven food system development, and public policy that supports all of the above. All my work is collaborative: I co-founded Niche Meat Processor Assistance Network, the Oregon Community Food Systems Network, and the Oregon Food Hub Network. For the NWRM RFBC, I’m a regional co-lead with CSU and co-lead Oregon’s state team.
