Portland Public Schools Makes Deal for Radishes

This month, Portland Public School students who eat school lunch will find that their salad bars include fresh radishes from Gabe Trif of Cal Farms in Oregon City.

Gitta Grether-Sweeney, the assistant director for the district, posted a request on FoodHub’s Marketplace section for 200 pounds of radishes. Trif was one of three respondents. Connection made!

Gitta has another post in the Marketplace section right now for mixed greens for the salad bar. FoodHub farmers, be sure to login regularly to check Marketplace posts!

The opportunity to connect with school districts and get regionally produced foods into the school cafeteria has never been greater. FoodHub is here to help jump start the connections. There are a number of new school districts in FoodHub—see the list below. Do you produce food in or near these communities? If so, be sure to connect!
