2021-2022 OFB Ambassador and FEAST program

Dear Community Partners,


We are excited to announce that applications for the 2021-2022 OFB Ambassador and FEAST programs are now open !


Please help us get information about these opportunities to other community partners and broader community through strategic direct emails and wider approaches like newsletters. Or, if you prefer, send contact information for folks who may be interested to acvitkovic@oregonfoodbank.organd ddinihanian@oregonfoodbank.org and we will reach out. Examples of applicants: community organizers, culturally specific organization staff, farmers/ranchers, community health workers, food system enthusiasts!

OFB Ambassadors (formerly Seed to Supper Ambassadors) are leaders from culturally specific communities across Oregon who work on projects aimed to improve their community's access to food security resources, address root causes of hunger, and create engagement opportunities for a more inclusive democracy. OFB Ambassadors receive a $4,000 stipend over 15 months, and have $6,000 to fund their projects. More information can be found in the flyers (attached). Interested applicants can fill out this form in English or Spanish and/or reach out to Devin (ddinihanian@oregonfoodbank.org) directly. Applications due September 1, 2021.


FEAST (Food, Education, Agriculture, Solutions Together) Support Fund is a statewide grant program to support community conversations about food that lead to local action. Through this 15 month program, Oregon Food Bank supports local leadership teams to plan and hold FEAST conversations in their community. From those conversations, communities identify and lead projects that help strengthen their food system and build community food security. FEAST Support Fund grants are up to $5,000, with an additional $2,000 available to support leadership team participation. More information can be found on the flyers (attached) and on the OFB Portals page. Interested applicants can review the Request for Proposals (on the OFB Portals page) and are encouraged to contact Adriana (971-223-3359, acvitkovic@oregonfoodbank.org) before applying. Applications due October 1, 2021.


Both programs give preference to immigrant and refugee communities, Black, Indigenous, and communities of color, trans and gender-nonconforming communities, and single mothers or caregivers. FEAST also gives preference to rural communities, and those who haven't done FEAST in the past two years.


Send us a note if you'd like to talk more about OFB Ambassadors or FEAST.
