Jake Greenburg hasn’t moved in yet, but has already proven himself time and time again to be a great neighbor. If you search for him on the internet, you will see that he has owned and operated Classic Foods, a Portland-based specialty food wholesaler catering to restaurants, for the past 25 years. You’ll also find out the man is heavily involved in many social causes—donating food, services, and support to organizations like Birch Community Services, Self Enhancement, Inc., Our House, and Community Cycling Center. He won’t bring attention to all of this himself, but it is clear that he is a man not only dedicated to providing high-quality products and top-notch service to his customers, but to having an active and relevant role in his community as well. Now in the process of expanding his business—moving from a 17,000 square foot building to a massive 45,000 square foot space on Northeast Madrona Street—he intends on being a positive force in the Woodlawn neighborhood.
