Here in the Northwest, we love salmon and work to protect our salmon runs. Wild salmon could potentially be threatened if GMO farmed fish escape, not to mention the unknown effects on human health. The possible benefit of somewhat cheaper salmon is not worth the enormous risk. Sign this petition to let the FDA know you won’t eat genetically modified fish.

The familiar mantra reduce, reuse, recycle also implies use up what you have, don’t buy more than you need, don’t waste resources. So I was horrified to learn of the extent of food waste in America.

The dining room at Elevation restaurant

The dining room at Elevation restaurant in Bend, OR
on the campus of Central Oregon Community College.

I really appreciate that Elevation, the restaurant operated by the Central Oregon Community College Culinary Institute, is supporting local growers and hosting farm to table dinners. Even though I couldn’t go there for dinner on my birthday yesterday as I wanted to because they were closed for a special Meet the Farmer dinner. We’re going tonight instead. Can’t wait.
