GRAS: Mission Statement
GRAS' mission is to make Sacramento the #1 sustainable food community in California, a model for other communities.
With our partner restaurants and the urban agriculture movement, we have created a new model for sustainable food communities. We aim to keep restaurant waste resources local for highest and best use, and for urban agriculture if possible. GRAS offers programs that build awareness and develop best practices for the local community, schools, and the restaurant industry.
GRAS is working with the Cal EPA - Air Resources Board, Cal Recycle, and the County of Sacramento - Solid Waste Authority, and Californians Against Waste to ensure that community composting can be fully permitted in Sacramento and throughout the State.
GRAS teaches the benefits of composting at numerous school classes, workshops and community demonstrations such as State Fair and F2F Festival, and offers a community compost collection at the weekly Midtown Farmers Market.
Sun & Soil
ReSoil Sacramento, our pedal-powered Community Compost Network, has diverted 219,872 lbs of produce scraps from the landfill and into local soils.
GRAS is working to sustain the fertile soils of our Farm-to-Fork Capital by completing the food-cycle.
