Who we are
Know Thy Food was born in February 2008 from the need for fairly priced, healthy foods among members of Portland Green Parenting. We are friends and neighbors who are interested in buying healthy foods at fair prices, supporting sustainable agriculture and protecting the environment. We started out as a small drop point for Azure Standard deliveries hosted in living rooms and kitchens, but quickly grew into a much larger multi-vendor food buying club.
Inspired by the successful model developed by the Oklahoma Food Co-op, we are now developing a farm-direct networking project that brings together local farmers, food producers and members who care about the land and share an enjoyment of simple wholesome foods.
Rebecca is the founder of Portland Green Parenting, a parenting support network with a focus on green parenting and sustainable living. She has a couple of degrees in Cultural Anthropology and an interest in community building and the intertwining of internet technology in people’s daily life. Luckily, her partner Dan is a software developer who provides the technical assistance needed to create these websites. They live in an old 1913 Craftsman fixer upper in inner SE Portland with their four children.
