Durable Dish Program
Ever notice all of the plastic forks in the garbage?
We have a solution! This year, we are encouraging all of our lunch vendors to use metal utensils. Each booth will have a bucket for returning the dirty utensils. Please support this Durable Dish initiative by returning your utensil to the booth where you bought your lunch. They need a 99% return rate the make this effort affordable!
Produce Brought to YOU- CSA Opportunities
Become a member of a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) this year! This season, the OHSU community, including employees, students & visitors, have the opportunity to subscribe to a weekly box of freshly-harvested Organic produce from Minto Island Growers (MIG) , delivered directly to your work-doorstep (no-middle-man, fresh from the farm, picked within 24-48 hours.)
This system is wonderful for the farmers as it provides a known source of funds for the season as well as expected amount to harvest. CSA members enjoy fresh produce and the opportunity to get to know their local farmer, learn about small scale organic production systems and invest in the local economy. Members pay for their 22 week share in 1 or 2 installments. A partial share costs $400 and a full share costs $590 for the full 22 weeks worth of produce.Their produce is beautiful, their shares are abundant, the farmers are incredibly reliable and the cost is very reasonable for 22 boxes.
Minto Island Growers' CSA drop locations at OHSU in 2013 include:
- OHSU, Marquam Hill Campus (2 sites)
- Center For Health and Healing - Waterfront
- OHSU Foundation, Downtown
- Marquam Plaza, Downtown
- Market Square Building, Downtown
