This new Portland Food Hub is truly innovative. As an urban sustainable food and distribution hub, it is solving critical scale, resource and delivery challenges within the local and sustainable food economy.
Over the last two years I've talked with countless Seattle area growers and artisan producers and it's clear we could benefit from this model. I'm currently spending a portion of my time reaching out to policy makers and key folks working on livability, freight and congestion issues to lay the groundwork and vision for Seattle to embrace and lead with urban sustainable distribution.
We may set up a roundtable soon. Let me know if you want to join the conversation.
