We are grounded in Edmonton. From local farms to your table, every plate we serve leaves a positive impact on our community. By sourcing from local growers, we reinvest more than $750,000 into Edmonton’s economy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions generated from food production and transportation.
In 2019, 45% of our culinary team’s purchases were made through partnerships with local producers and growers within 100 miles of Edmonton. We work in collaboration with local partners so that when we’re responsible, events can leave a positive impact on the place we call home.
