Tag It Forward Coffee is a social business venture through Cascade Youth & Family Center to provide youth with hands on training and experience as baristas. The inspiration for this innovative employment training program came from the Dertinger family. Their son, Taggart, had a thriving mobile coffee van business when his life abruptly ended in 2012. The family donated the van to Cascade Youth & Family Center to carry on Tag’s legacy of helping others in need.
Pilot Butte Drive In has been a Bend landmark since 1983 and offers a variety of tasty burgers along with great breakfasts. When you want a real hamburger, you go to the Pilot Butte Drive In. Now run by 3rd generation family member, Pilot Butte Drive In wins the customer over with the quality of their food, and Uke U is delighted to have them back.
Annie Johnston is a local caterer who is famous for her delicious food. She caters for workshops, retreats, conferences, and social functions in the Bend area, and we are delighted to have her at Uke U for the first time. Those of you who have attended Song Camp in conjunction with the Sisters Folk Festival know what a good cook she is!
