ConAgra Mills and the Oakland Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce would be honored to have you attend the community celebration for ConAgra Mills' newly expanded Oakland Mill. The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at noon on Thursday the 6th of June 2013, at the mill's waterfront property, located at 2201 E. 7th Street in the 5th District.

 To celebrate the Oakland Mill's commitment to the community and sustainable milling, there will be a day-long open house for customers, Oakland Unified School District fourth and fifth grade children, as well as members of the Oakland City Council, Oakland Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and local businesses. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour and learn about the history, expansion and sustainable efforts of the mill while interactive stations will allow participants to experience wheat's field-to-fork story, from a milling demonstration all the way to the making of pizza dough. Throughout the day, Oakland based food trucks, including Cupkate's and Fist of Flour, will be at the event serving foods made with ConAgra Mills' flour.
After $21.5 million of capital investments, ConAgra Mills is celebrating improvements at the Oakland Mill, which features upgraded milling, sustainable and environmental capabilities that improve efficiencies and take advantage of state-of-the-art equipment, allowing ConAgra Mills to better service both local and regional customers including leading Oakland companies like Bimbo, Safeway, Sterling and Boudin Bakery.
ConAgra Mills' investment in Oakland goes beyond sustainable practices. In addition to the facility upgrades, the Oakland Mill has a strong civic commitment to the community. ConAgra Mills has a passionate commitment to end child hunger and provides ongoing donations and volunteers to the local food bank. At the upcoming celebration, ConAgra Mills will be presenting a $2,500 donation to the Alameda County Community Food Bank. 
Originally built as a feed mill in 1927 and then converted to a flour mill in 1965, ConAgra's Oakland Mill is a hallmark of the city's proud industrial history. ConAgra Mills operates 23 community mills across the United States and Puerto Rico and is proud to be a part of the City of Oakland and one of the nation's leading suppliers of flour and other premium wheat/flour brands, such as King Midas®, Kyrol®, Full Power®, Minnesota Girl® and Occident® heritage brands that have helped define the foods of the American table for over a century.
