Let's celebrate Oregon's bounty by discovering how sustainable food is grown, harvested, produced, shipped, prepared and served across this great state. South Waterfront Community Relations has assembled some of our region's foremost food experts, from farmers, restaurant owners, chefs, and grocers to help dispel myths and give us the facts on sustainable dining.
The Sustainable Food Panel will include:
John Orlando, owner of Meriwether's Restaurant

Mellie Pullman, PSU Professor of Business and Board Member of the Food Alliance
Earl Hook, Chef of Meriwether's Restaurant
Josh Volk, Farmer for Meriwether's Skyline Farm
David Yudkin, President of Hot Lips Pizza
Ann Forsthoefel, Executive Director of Portland Farmers Market
Shelia Nicholas, Owner of Anam Cara Cellars
Eat while you’re learning: Meriwether's Restaurant will provide some delicious appetizers using ingredients from their Skyline Farm and Anam Cara Cellars will be pouring their '06 Nicholas Estate Pinot Noir and '08 Nicholas Estate Riesling.
