Guests, supporters, and award winners gather at the Ecotrust Building for the Local Hero Awards

LOCAL HEROES: Edible Portland and Ecotrust threw a beautiful rooftop barbecue — with a keynote by Nell Newman of Newman’s Own Organics — to honor outstanding members of our local food community at the Local Hero Awards held at the Ecotrust Building in The Pearl District.

After Nell, the daughter of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward and the name behind one of the hottest organic brands, announced the Local Hero Awards, all three floors of Ecotrust were thrown open to reveal renowned local chefs, who put together an awesome barbecue, sourced directly from our region’s most sustainable producers.

All proceeds from the event support Ecotrust’s work to build a resilient regional food system.
