A loan of $5,000 helped launch Source, an oyster bar and retail shop, by funding the purchasing of equipment and providing working capital.


Jennifer's story

Being married to a member of the United States Coast Guard meant moving every two to four years for the last sixteen years. With my husband's retirement, we were finally able to plant roots and make a home outside the Coast Guard. When my husband began his last tour as the executive petty officer of Station Tillamook Bay in Garibaldi, we quickly fell in love with the natural beauty of the Oregon Coast and decided to make Tillamook County our permanent home post-retirement.

I have experience with the seafood industry through working at CS Fishery, a Garibaldi based seafood company with a focus on sourcing sustainably harvested fish landed by local, small boat fishermen directly to consumers. I'm passionate about empowering consumers to make healthy, sustainable food choices for themselves, their community, and the environment. Through Source, my goal is to match our local producers directly to consumers and to highlight the bounty that comes from healthy land and seas.
