Location: Mountainview Room

Speaker(s): Andrea Stafford - Marketing Manager, The Food Co-op

Ever wonder if the work your doing is positively impacting your community?
Does your organization donate or sponsor things blindly without any strategy in mind? If you answered yes to both these questions, this workshop is for you! Learn how to define an effective outreach and giving strategy that will best align your community outreach marketing strategies with your organization’s values and mission.


Andrea is a visionary, a creator, and most importantly, she doesn’t settle. She values connection and the ability to inspire others to do things they may not know they can do.

Andrea has over 20 years in the Food and Beverage industry ranging from restaurants to retail. After years of restaurant work designing menus and developing local craft beer, wine, and cocktail lists, Andrea moved on to the natural/organic grocery biz. Her work as a Marketing Manager for Whole Foods Market developed some long-lasting community relationships in the Portland Oregon Metro area and she was granted the Regional All-Star award for 2013.

In 2017, Andrea and her family decided to leave the big city and relocated to the town of Port Townsend, WA where she took on the role of Marketing Director for The Food Co-op.

In the last year, Andrea has helped The Food Co-op successfully rebrand, complete a $3M remodel project, and fine-tune their community outreach programs.

Andrea is always looking for ways to cooperate, collaborate and create something amazing.
