Local Food Buyer/ Seller Matchmaker
Thursday, February 15th, 10am - Noon
FISH Food Bank, Hood River
 
This is a free and unique opportunity to network, make plans to partner, discuss challenges, and lay the groundwork for getting more local food into schools, restaurants, hospitals, universities, and businesses. The demand for using local food is strong but requires a relationship between farmers and buyers. This is a great chance to start that process.
 
The Matchmaker is open to:
 
     - BUYERS of Gorge grown, raised or processed foods: chefs, supermarkets, specialty markets, restaurants, hotels, institutions, schools, distributors, and food processors in search of local ingredients for commercial purposes 
     - SELLERS of Gorge grown, raised or processed foods: farmers and food processors
