Angela McGregor Hedstrom
Community Food Systems Manager
I work to connect school nutrition professionals, food producers, educators, and community partners to increase access to locally sourced and culturally relevant foods in meals and learning activities, in early childhood and beyond. My goal is to support school food programs and educational environments (including the cafeteria) that are deeply rooted in racial equity, belonging, joy, and wonder. I’m a visual learner and need space and time to process and reflect. Sometimes this space is cultivated via hand sewing, letter writing, plant loving, note taking, walking, and/or laying down.

For more than a decade, Ecotrust advanced farm to school and school garden programs in Oregon through legislative action.
