“We love connecting local chefs and small food producers in our communities to help create incredible products that celebrate and benefit our local food system,” said Mark Law, chief operations officer at New Seasons Market. “From a classic pilsner to an Asian sausage, and a Southern chocolate treat, we’re proud to show off the diversity of the Pacific Northwest culinary community while supporting local producers and nonprofits.”
A portion of gross sales from these collaboration products will be donated to Feast Portland’s 2019 charitable partners, Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon and Urban Gleaners. Since 2012, Feast has raised more than $450,000 to help end hunger in Oregon. The festival is proud to continue supporting this important cause through its charitable partners.
New Seasons Market is the presenting sponsor of The Big Feast, taking place on Saturday and Sunday of Feast Portland weekend at Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Tickets for The Big Feast are available at FeastPortland.com.
Bon Appétit Presents Feast Portland is more than a food and drink festival. It’s a movement that celebrates the diverse food and beverage community in Portland, Oregon and around the world. The festival is grounded in a sense of place, telling the story of the chefs, winemakers, brewers, farmers, artisans and makers in Oregon and how they connect with and inspire the rest of the world. Feast represents Oregon the incubator: a place where chefs, restaurateurs and entrepreneurs redefine what it means to be a leader in the 21st Century; a think tank where conversations about mindfulness, balance and leadership in food and beverage intersect; and a platform to showcase the most inspiring ideas and personalities from our city, our region, our country and worldwide. Through expansive one-of-a-kind large-scale events, intimate hands-on classes and collaborative dinners and thought-provoking panels, Feast has welcomed guests from around the globe and donated more than $450,000 to hunger relief charities helping to fight hunger in Oregon.
