Dine Out with GROW Bananas!

Restaurants in the Portland, Oregon area are giving back in a big way through the use of our GROW bananas! Realizing their customers want socially responsible, top quality organic products, it’s no wonder these restaurants chose GROW bananas! GROW (Giving Resources and Opportunities to Workers) is the epitome of social activism and has provided nearly a quarter of a million dollars toward educational assistance, scholarships, homework clubs, dental health and medical assistance to the banana workers and their families.

GROW bananas can currently be found in a diverse group of Portland area establishments including Bijou Cafe, Blossoming Lotus Café, Breitenbush, Lighthouse Center, Laughing Planet, Marche Café, New Odyssey Juice and Java, PastaWorks Hawthorne, and Off the Waffle.

According to Chad Frazier, one of the chefs at Breitenbush Hot Springs outside of Portland, OR, “Social responsibility and sustainability are the essence of who we are. And with a staple for us like bananas, being able to offer our guests GROW bananas is a perfect fit. Maintaining our values in the foods we offer is not a choice, it’s a requirement. In most cases we also try to buy as much produce as possible that is locally grown, but since that’s not possible with bananas, these that come from Mexico have less far to travel than most.”

We hope for our bananas to be used in more sustainable restaurants in the future.

In the meantime, if you’re in the Portland area, be sure to check out one of these restaurants and indulge in a dish made with GROW bananas!
