Central Oregon Locavore promotes local food and farmers for the health of our community. We work for an ecologically stable and socially just food system in Central Oregon by improving access to fresh, nutrient-dense local food, educating the community about the benefits of sustainably produced food and supporting farmers and ranchers.

Please contribute to the Locavore Freezer Fund today and help us upgrade our domestic freezer fleet to commercial to better serve our community. Why are we looking to upgrade to commercial freezers?

The Environment – we have taken over half a dozen defunct freezers to the landfill in the last year and we feel really bad about it! It does not jive at all with our commitment to sustainable business operations.
Food Production Chain – with the current “breaks” in the meat processing and production chain, we anticipate increased local meat sales from our local ranchers, and will need equipment that is up to the challenge.
Product Protection – our ranchers work incredibly hard to create a healthy, quality product from start to finish and it is our responsibility to care for this product with the same care that they do. Our worst fear is one of our freezers dying and compromising our ranchers products before we discover it.

What Locavore Does…


Central Oregon Locavore offers eight educational programs to community members, students, farmers, ranchers, and producers.


Locavore provides access to local food year round as Bend’s Only Indoor Farmers Market with community space for gathering.


Along with educating and accessing local food, Locavore also celebrates the season with local farmers, ranchers, and chefs at our many events.
