Schools may be closed right now, but some of them are going to be this much closer to offering fresh food in the cafeteria when fall rolls around. A new social app called FoodHub allows farmers and school food providers to talk to each other…and best of all, do business with each other. The app, created by EcoTrust, is already in use by 125 school districts in the Pacific Northwest. “It tells us who is interested in buying local,” says EcoTrust’s Farm to School manager Stacey Sobell.
And now for some fresh job opps:

2. New, cool-looking Italian restaurant in Atlanta needs a sous chef with two years fine dining experience and a “passion for cooking.” Focus at Cibo e Beve is on Italian cuisine using seasonal, local ingredients.
3. Wichita, Kansas has room for its own celebrity chef. The opening of the city’s first boutique hotel in the 1926 Ambassador Hotel building includes the Siena Tuscan Steakhouse Restaurant, which needs an executive chef to get things launched. Be “ready to make this restaurant an outstanding success.”
