Monadnock Menus: Getting the Word Out

An initiative of Monadnock Farm & Community Connection

Monadnock Menus is a new initiative for farmers, restaurants, chefs  – AND YOU.  The goal is to create a community where local food is easy to find by identifying restaurants that are serving local food.  Fill out a Monadnock Menus Request Card every time you eat out – and leave the card on the table with your tip, or give it directly to a manager.

Where can you find this card?  Request cards and informational fliers are at:

  • Keene Public Library (on their events bulletin board)
  • Keene Chamber of Commerce
  • Stonewall Farm’s farm stand
  • Stonewall Farm’s booth at the Saturday farmer’s market
  • Peterborough Chamber of Commerce

Getting Local on the Menu

Many of us would love to see more local food on the menu of the restaurants we know and love. And many chefs and business owners support buying local and could use your support and encouragement!

The September 2010 Monadnock Localvore E-Newsletter highlights both local and national initiatives that are encouraging us all to choose locally grown food when we eat out. By 2011, let’s make sure Monadnock Region Restaurants are acknowledged for “Getting Local on the Menu.”
