more weeks, so if you didn't pack in enough outdoor fun, it isn't too
late to get outside.

soil produces amazing fruits and vegetables. Our vineyards grow grapes
that make award-winning wines. Our hops are the reason Portland has
more breweries than any other city in the world. Our ocean provides
sustainably caught salmon, Dungeness crab and tuna. And our beef, pork
and chicken are organic and raised to the highest standards. We grow
much of the country's hazelnuts, marionberries and green beans. And our
forests are home to so many exotic mushrooms the Japanese have us on
speed dial. Best of all, we have marvelous chefs who know what to do
with all this abundance. So we decided it's high time we had our own
world-class celebration of food, drink and everything else that makes
Portland awesome. We're calling it Feast Portland.
At the heart of the
a mission to end childhood hunger in Oregon and in our country. A state
where food is so plentiful should not also rank as one of the hungriest
in the nation. This is part of the four-day dynamic exchange of ideas,
inspiration and dialogue that Feast Portland will create with food
enthusiasts from Oregon, across the U.S. and around the globe.
