  • Executive chef and restaurant partners source 90% of their ingredients from a 150-mile radius
  • Majority of beer, wine and spirits sourced within 150-mile radius
  • All leftover, edible food will be given to Sacramento Community Food Bank and Family Services via our Second That program, supporting over 200 local agencies
  • California Safe Soil will treat waste with organic enzymes and process in a giant food digester. It will be “digested” and then pasteurized, filtered and put back into the soil at local farms.
  • Leftover fryer oil, which is locally produced rice bran oil, will be converted to biodiesel by a local, family-run business
