The OFB Women’s Advisory Council is dedicated to supporting leadership development for women in Farm Bureau and promoting the importance of Oregon agriculture to the general public.
Throughout the year, WAC raises money to donate to the Ronald McDonald House Charities in conjunction with AFBF’s Our Food Link campaign.
Thanks to county Farm Bureau donations and funds raised by WAC activities, over $4,000 worth of groceries was given to Oregon’s Ronald McDonald Houses in 2014.
WAC members have hosted a reception at the state capitol for lawmakers, legislative staffers, and the general public to celebrate and highlight Oregon agriculture. Recent WAC workshops for Farm Bureau
members include farm succession planning and a legislative update.
