Gabriel’s Bakery is a leader in food for the future. Despite convention, they choose sustainably grown grains. I’ve seen the bagels around town and had the pleasure of eating a few, but had no idea they were made here in Portland by such warm and wonderful people. Jan Zukerman has been a leader in the Portland sustainability movement for decades. Notably, she was a formative teacher at Sunnyside Environmental Middle School, recently retired. Currently, she is supporting teens in their own environmental activism and is a key player for Create Plenty. Her passion and love draws commitment and strength. For the short story contest, she wrote the big check that ensured we would be able to put the contest on. Thank you Gabriel’s Bakery for sponsoring Stories to Change the World.
