This is a group we think is really great: a social network in town for young professionals specifically involved or wanting to be involved in the sustainable business movement.
What’s cool is that so far each tour site has been hosted by a fellow Salem Green Professional — Painters Hall (James), Sequential-Pacific Biodiesel (Tyson), Wildwood-Mahonia (Travis), Zena Forest Products (Ben), Wandering Aengus Ciderworks (another James), and now Organic Fresh Fingers (Evann). It’s an awesome group of people! To get on the email list, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
For our November gathering, Salem Green Professional and entrepreneur Evann Remington, Founder and CEO of Organic Fresh Fingers, will provide a tour of her company’s production kitchen on Broadway. Organic Fresh Fingers provides fresh, local, natural and organic, high-quality foods for kids, childcare facilities, and schools in Oregon, and can be found on the shelves of Roth’s, Lifesource, and several large Portland supermarkets.
We will gather at the Kitchen and learn about the Organic Fresh Fingers business philosophy, commitment to environmental and social responsibility, their products & processes, the importance of nutrition in child development, as well as how our food choices impact the environment.
Organic Fresh Fingers has become the expert on the National School Lunch Program and why so many school districts in the U.S. struggle to feed kids fresh, healthy food – come with your questions!
