What Does Portland Oregon and Portland Maine Have in Common?

Kind Dining and Great Food


Thank you to all who attended our Kind Dining  and Culture Change workshop at SYSCO NNE’s recent Health Care Conference and Food Show.

We had a record number of participants, enjoyable connections, problem solving and story sharing.  A special thank you to David Booth and Clark Hincher of SYSCO NNE for inviting me.


I enjoyed a visit to the Portland Maine Harbor, and dined at  DiMillo’s floating restaurant in the heart of Old Port with David and my good friend Audrey Morgan, Food Service Director for North Country Associates.
