Abstract

The Ten Rivers Food Web Records document the establishment, leadership and administration, and extensive programs and activities of this local community organization in Benton, Lincoln, and Linn Counties of western Oregon.  The Ten Rivers Food Web was formally established in April 2005 as a result of a Food Summit held in Corvallis, Oregon, in late 2004 that brought together individuals involved with and concerned about food and its production and distribution.  The energy and desire to strengthen local food security led to the formation of the Ten Rivers Food Web with a goal of seeing more of the food grown in the local “foodshed” (roughly Benton, Lincoln, and Linn Counties) processed and consumed locally.

The collection includes extensive born-digital materials, which are available for use in the Special Collections and Archives Research Center Reading Room or upon request.  Born-digital videos are available for viewing online.

Scope and Content Notes

The Ten Rivers Food Web Records document the establishment, leadership and administration, and extensive programs and activities of this local community organization in Benton, Lincoln, and Linn Counties of western Oregon.  The records provide a local perspective on community organizing, addressing food insecurity and hunger, promoting healthy eating and nutrition based on local foods and food sources, and fostering sustainable agriculture.

The records document the leadership and administration of the organization primarily through board materials, which include agendas and minutes, chapter and board policies, handbooks, staff reports, and strategic plans.  The collection includes extensive documentation of events and programs sponsored by Ten Rivers Food Web to educate and inform the community, raise funds, and promote local food sources.  These events and programs were held throughout Benton, Lincoln, and Linn Counties.  Records pertaining to the establishment of a community food land trust and the organization’s support of a 2015 ballot measure in Benton County prohibiting the cultivation of genetically engineered organisms are also included.  Reference materials and publications on hunger in Oregon and community health and food assessments by Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon as well as files pertaining to generational land transfer are part of the collection.

Materials documenting That’s My Farmer – a program of Ten Rivers Food Web to connect community members with local farmers and encourage purchasing of local food – form a substantial component of the collection.  Educational programs and Ten Rivers Food Web’s involvement in assisting SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) recipients buy food from their local farmers’ markets and the fundraising to provide incentive matching funds are documented extensively.  Fundraising to support all the programs and activities of the organization – through grant applications, special events to raise money, and direct donations – were a major effort of the Board and are documented in these records.

Of particular note in the collections are materials pertaining to the establishment of the Emergency Food Pantry at Oregon State University, which is now a program of the Human Services Resource Center, and documentation of the roles of Oregon State faculty Joan Gross and Nancy Rosenberger in providing research support during the establishment of the organization and serving in volunteer leadership positions.

The collection includes a substantial component of born-digital records (43.5 Gbytes in more than 30,000 digital files) – some of which are also available in the collection in analog (printed) form.  The bulk of these born-digital files are described as Series 8; however, born-digital records are described as part of other series as well.  The born-digital files provide extensive documentation of the organization beginning in about 2011.  In addition to documents (primarily *.doc and *.pdf), the collection includes digital photographs.  All of the born-digital records, including digital photographs, are available for use in the Special Collections and Archives Research Center Reading Room or upon request.  Born-digital videos are available for viewing online.

The records were created and assembled by multiple individuals with different roles in the organization, including founders, volunteers, board members, staff, and executive directors.  The following people were identified in the records and are referenced in the detailed description of the collection:  Xan Augerot, Kate Dolkas Joan Gross, Harry MacCormack, Lynn Martin, Jen Christion Myers, Cassie Peters, Chloe Rico, and Nancy Rosenberger.  Because of the manner in which the records were assembled and transferred, there is substantial duplication within and between analog and digital materials.

Biographical / Historical Notes

The Ten Rivers Food Web was formally established in April 2005 as a result of a Food Summit held in Corvallis, Oregon, in December 2004 that brought together individuals involved with and concerned about food and its production and distribution – farmers, educators, hunger activists, realtors, seed companies, food retailers, students, government officials, and consumers.  The energy and desire to strengthen local food security expressed at the Summit led to the formation of the Ten Rivers Food Web (TRFW) with a goal of seeing more of the food grown in the local “foodshed” (roughly Benton, Linn, and Lincoln Counties) processed and consumed within the foodshed.  The organization is named for the ten rivers that are present in this local area:  the Siletz, Yaquina, Alsea, Luckiamute, Marys, Long Tom, Willamette, Calapooia, North Santiam, and South Santiam Rivers.  Community conversations and open forums which had begun in the late 1990s, continued in the early 2000s regarding increasing hunger and food insecurity, and formed a strong foundation for the 2004 Food Summit, which served as the launch point for establishment of TRFW.

The primary goals and projects of the Ten Rivers Food Web were focused on issues of food literacy;, local farm coordination; revival and establishment of community processing facilities; bringing together farms and institutional kitchens (schools and restaurants); and increasing food security and access to fresh, locally-grown food for low-income communities.  Oregon State University faculty Joan Gross and Nancy Rosenberger provided research assistance and later served as officers and members of the TRFW board.  TRFW was instrumental in the establishment of an Emergency Food Pantry at OSU, which is now a program of the Human Services Resource Center.

The organization was approved for  tax-exempt status in 2007; received grants to support outreach, organizing and research; and offered a variety of programs and activities including That’s My Famer SNAP incentives for purchases at local farmers’ markets; Fill Your Pantry; Seed to Supper;  FEAST: Food, Education, Agricultural Solutions Together; Farm to Fork; Cooking Matters; Chef’s Show Off; and Terra Madre.

In 2011, Ten Rivers Food Web was one of 4 organizations selected by the Meyer Memorial Trust to receive a $300,000 grant over 3 years.  This funding allowed TRFW to hire staff to serve as community food organizers in Benton, Lincoln, and Linn Counties as well as an Executive Director to oversee operations and development.  Programming expanded significantly during this period.

Harry MacCormack, organic farmer and co-founder of the organic certifier Oregon Tilth, is a founder and Board member of Ten Rivers Food Web.

Series 3: Community Food Land Trust, 2011-2017
Series 3 documents the Community Food Land Trust (CFLT) program created by Ten Rivers Food Web.  The mission of this program was to acquire and hold land in a public benefit land trust to grow food in perpetuity.  This would provide new farmers with affordable access to food production land and allow the local community to directly support its food growers.  Through the work of its Land Access Committee, materials from the Oregon Community Food Systems Network are also part of this series.  The series includes correspondence, notes, and directly-related reference material.

Series 4: Benton County Food Freedom, 2013-2016
Series 4 consists of materials created by the Ten Rivers Food Web to support the Benton County Food Freedom campaign in Benton County, Oregon, in support of ballot measure 2-89 "Local Food System Ordinance" in the May 2015 election.  Measure 2-89 asked: "Should voters enact an ordinance prohibiting cultivation of genetically engineered organisms and creating rights relating to food production?"  The measure, which was defeated in the May 2015 election, would have prohibited corporations or government from planting transgenetic seed in the county.  Benton County Food Freedom argued that genetically modified organisms could cross-pollinate and reduce people's ability to save, replant, and adapt open pollinated seeds free from contamination.  The measure attempted to eliminate personal liability to any corporation claiming seed patent or ownership rights, or commercial infringement resulting from inadvertent infection of agricultural crops by genetically engineered organisms or other patented traits.  The materials in this series reflect outreach, research, and positions to support this measure as well as related outreach and events Ten Rivers Food Web was involved with at the time.  The series also includes born-digital sound recordings of a hearing pertaining to the measure at the Benton County Courthouse in February 2013 (13 files; 43.1 Mbytes).

Series 5: That's My Farmer, 2008-2017
Series 5 documents the That's My Farmer (TMF) program of the Ten Rivers Food Web.  The program aimed to connect community members with local farmers and encourage purchasing of local food through incentives and educational opportunities, including SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), farmers' market tours, and Veggies Rx (Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program).  A substantial portion of this series documents Ten Rivers Food Web's involvement in assisting SNAP recipients buy food from their local farmers' markets  and fundraising to provide incentive matching funds.  The series includes surveys and questionnaires capturing information about how many SNAP recipients visited the farmers' markets, how much SNAP credit they spent, if they are interested in farmers' markets, and if farmers' markets are accessible to them.  The Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program (Veggies Rx) aimed to address barriers to healthy eating and promoted a sustained consumption of local fruits and vegetables.  In addition to surveys and questionnaires, the series includes handouts, informational materials, program binders, reports, and agendas.

Series 8: Executive Director and Staff Electronic Records, 2008-2016

Series 8 consists of electronic records created and assembled by Ten Rivers Food Web Executive Directors and staff and is arranged in 4 sub-series -- one for each of those individuals.  The bulk of the digital files are *.doc; *.xsl, or *.pdf format; the series also includes digital photographs.  The records were created and assembled by Chloe Rico, Kate Dolkas, Cassie Peters, and Jen Christion Myers.  The digital files were captured from staff personal computers in  April 2016 and saved onto an external hard drive. These electronic records have been minimally processed and the original arrangement (by individual staff computer and thereunder in high-level root folders) has been retained.  The folder structure, especially of the Google Drive portions of each sub-series, is substantially the same for all the sub-series.  There is certainly extensive duplication of files between sub-series as well as with-in some sub-series.  The total quantity of electronic records in this series is 27,771 files (22.5 Gbytes).

The records document the administration and leadership of the organization, including Board minutes, annual reports, financial records, and personnel; programs and activities of the organization, including That's My Farmer, Fill Your Pantry, Veggies Rx, and Roots to Rivers; and materials documenting local and community endeavours regarding food.

This series likely includes born-digital forms of printed records that are part of other series in this collection.
