Bob's Red Mill

I post this here because I don't know what else to do with it. I just got OSU gardening newsletter and there was info and a link to this atricle about Bob's Red Mill. Nice article and interesting. At least we Portlanders have access to many different whole grains and beans, and have had long before it was popular. Almost everything but Durum flour. 

Gift from founders of Bob's Red Mill will launch new OSU center
A $5 million gift from one of the world's most prominent advocates for whole grains and healthy eating will launch a new research and outreach center at OSU focused on nutrition of whole grain foods.

Bob is awesome.

BTW I just got an email from Bob's Red Mill saying that on Tuesday February 15th from 1-2 they are going to hold a birthday celebration for Bob.  "Each person who visits the store between 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. will have a chance to get their picture taken with Bob, and will receive a free whole grain gift to take home."  If I can I would like to swing by to wish him a happy birthday and express my gratitude for all the good things he's done for bakers and the community.

Bob's is in Milwaukie:
