 h1. Dear readers,

 Grocers and others who want to stock and serve locally grown foods face the challenge of the current purchasing system, which favors large-scale, national suppliers. Deborah Kane and her colleagues in the Food and Farm division of Ecotrust have been working for years to match Northwest growers with Northwest buyers. (One of their programs, the Farmer-Chef Connection, has been around for almost a decade — long before "local food" was fashionable.) 

 In January, Ecotrust introduced FoodHub, a new web-based tool that's making easier the job of bringing buyers and growers together. Currently on Culinate, [/articles/opinion/whatisfoodhub?utmsource=NL03242010&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=KaneOpinion&utmcampaign=FoodHub "Kane describes how FoodHub works"] — and why it's an early success.

 Speaking of Deborah Kane, she's recently been chosen by [/articles/sift/sustainablefoodtop10?utmsource=NL03242010&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Fastcompany&utmcampaign=FoodHub "Fast Company"] as one of the 10 most inspiring people working in the area of sustainable food. No wonder: Not only does she manage the Food and Farms program but she also publishes the award-winning Edible Portland — the current issue of which contains a terrific story of how Piper Davis of [/books/collections/allbooks/thegrandcentralbakingbook?utmsource=NL03242010&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=GrandCentral&utmcampaign=FoodHub "Grand Central Baking"] (and [/articles/features/howtomakepalmiers?utmsource=NL03242010&utmmedium=email&utmcontent=Palmiers&utmcampaign=FoodHub "palmiers fame"]) came to source local eggs, flour, and more.
