Willamette Farm and Food Coalition facilitates and supports the development of a secure, sustainable, and inclusive food system in Lane County, Oregon.

We envision a secure, sustainable, and inclusive food system as one in which our farms and food businesses are both ecologically and economically viable, our agricultural lands are supporting a much larger percentage of Lane County’s food needs, and all members of our community have access to locally grown and raised foods. We believe that a strong local food system contributes to the integral health of our entire community and we work to facilitate greater understanding of the social, economic, and environmental impacts of our food choices.

We believe in the power of local foodways to create a strong, healthy, and resilient community. WFFC is a nonprofit organization (501(c)3) based in Eugene, Oregon, and serving all of Lane County.

Know before you go! Contact the farm in advance as crops and hours of operation vary.

Double Up Food Bucks

With Double Up Food Bucks, shoppers using SNAP (or food stamp) benefits receive “food bucks” valued at $10 per market day. Food bucks can be used to purchase fruits, vegetables, and other healthy foods.

To “double up,” go to a participating farmers market, swipe your Oregon Trail Card, match up to $10 with food bucks, and shop for fruits, vegetables, mushrooms, beans, cut herbs, nuts, and edible plant starts. It’s that easy!

Double Up is a partnership among local farmers markets, Farmers Market Fund, and WFFC and is made possible by generous support from Trillium Community Health Plan, Live Healthy Lane, and other local funders.

Community support is essential to keep the Double Up Food Bucks program going and reducing the economic barriers to healthy eating.

Help expand access to locally grown produce by donating today. Thank you!
