About the speaker
Since 1978, Bob has been committed to providing people everywhere with the best quality foods available. His passion for health and belief in taking care of one another is as strong today as it was when he first started the business with his wife, Charlee, all those years ago.
Bob plays a fundamental role in the daily operations of the business and his enthusiasm and "honest-to-goodness" approach are shared with every one of his employees. It's this passion for providing the very best nutritional whole grains that has helped make Bob’s Red Mill the leading name in health foods across the country.
In 2010 Bob and Charlee Moore made a gift of $5 million to establish the Moore Family Center for Whole Grain Foods, Nutrition and Preventive Health in OSU's College of Public Health and Human Sciences. The center is dedicated to helping individuals and communities live healthier through healthy foods and good nutrition. The Moore Family Center’s goal is to take a multidisciplinary approach to understand the role of all foods, including whole grains, in health promotion and disease prevention. The center builds upon synergies among research, education and outreach/practice to bridge the science of whole foods and nutrition to its practical application in the community.
Bob's support of the Moore Family Center and its work to improve lifelong health and well-being for every person, family and community in Oregon continues - OSU is grateful for Bob’s most recent contributions of $1 million to the Moore Family Center this past year.
