Foothills Community Food Partnership

In 2013, Foothills Food Bank gathered together a group of like-minded people to form the Foothills Community Food Partnership (FCFP). This consortium of community members and representatives from local organizations share a vision of creating a healthy, integrated food access system for the entire Foothills region.

In addition to Foothills Food Bank, members include representatives from the Opportunity Council, Washington State University's Whatcom County Extension, Whatcom County Health Department, Evergreen Land Trust Association, and the Northwest Agricultural Business Center.

Our collaborative efforts to improve food access and community resilience are built by incorporating community input, hosting community events, collaborating with like-minded partners, and supporting mutually beneficial programs.

Food Summits


In 2014, the FCFP hosted the first Foothills Food Summit, during which community members, partner organizations, and elected officials attended and held a joint conversation about food access and the food landscape in the Foothills region. A second Summit was held in 2019.
