A special announcement from the DC Farm to School Network: Looking for an excuse for a night out this Friday? Look no further! On January 22nd you can support locally-owned restaurants, the sustainable local food economy, and Washington, DC kids! The DC Farm to School Network’s Local Restaurants for Local Kids fundraiser is happening at some of the best restaurants in the District.
Several local food and drink hot spots are generously donating a portion of their proceeds to the DC Farm to School Network this Friday. The DC Farm to School Network is an organization that works to bring healthy, local produce into DC public school cafeterias. By simply enjoying a delicious snack, cocktail, or dinner at one of the great participating restaurants, you will help to improve access to healthy, tasty and local foods in D.C. schools!
DC Farm to School Network volunteers will be available at the restaurants, ready to answer questions or chat with you about our work. We look forward to seeing you at the restaurants below—tell your friends! We’re also looking for more volunteers – email Lauren@dcgreens.org if you’re interested.
Note: Obviously some of these are more family-friendly (e.g. Clyde’s) than others (note PS 7’s and Bread & Brew’s offers are only in their lounge/bar areas) — but all are appropriate for a parents’ night out.
