Six Degrees of OSIFT
The path of life is rarely linear and neither is the route that many of our members took to end up in the food industry. Check out these maps - Kevin Bacon has nothing on us!
Learn about the Farm to School program and its effect not only on Oregon's but the national food market with guest speaker Michelle Ratcliffe. Also on the table will be fun freeze drying and other food science demos!
Check out this fun segment from AM Northwest where Michelle makes a cranberry, pear & hazelnut chutney. Yummy!
