Green Restaurants Alliance Sacramento
GRAS is dedicated to growing a sustainable food community in the Farm-to-Fork Capital.
Our mission is to make Sacramento a leading sustainable food community in California - a model for other communities.
With the finest restaurants at the helm and a burgeoning urban ag movement, Sacramento has created a unique model for closing the loop - Farm-to-Fork-to Farm. GRAS offers programs that build education and awareness, and that 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.
ReSoil Sacramento, our pedal-powered Community Compost Network, has diverted 361,872 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.
