Thank you for making the first annual 30 Mile Meal Restaurant Week celebration of local businesses and flavorful local foods a success!
This event will be back in August 2014. See RW 2013 photos on our Facebook page.
As more people discover local food and the delicious food heritage of our region, the 30 Mile Meal seeks to promote our local restaurant partners! As you may know, the 30 Mile Meal is a marketing program for local farms, producers and businesses sourcing food locally in Northeast Ohio/Western Pennsylvania. The project is designed to strengthen the bottom line for local food businesses and create tourist destinations in our region based on food assets and culture. Since launching in February 2013, the project has attracted 40+ partners including popular eateries such as The Lakehouse Inn & Winery, Crosswinds Grille, Farm Girls Pub & Grub, Magic Tree Pub & Eatery, Catullo Prime Meats and The Sprouted Table.
For the Public:
Do you love dining out? Do you enjoy eating locally grown and produced foods?
If the answer is yes, you need to know about 30 Mile Meal Restaurant Week!
During this inaugural event, local restaurants, bars and eateries partnering with the 30 Mile Meal will feature special menu items consisting of only local ingredients sourced from local farmers and producers. The event will also highlight the health, economic and environmental benefits of consuming local foods.
Join us during this fabulous week celebrating local food by eating breakfast, lunch or dinner at one or more eateries participating in Restaurant Week in NEO/WPA. Then you can post photos of you, your friends or your family enjoying local meals on the 30 Mile Meal, Lake to River OH/PA Facebook page! Participating eateries will be listed on the 30 Mile Meal website soon. Look forward to meals that can go from fun to fancy to the unexpected!
You are invited to be part of the first annual 30 Mile Meal Restaurant Week and to partner with us in showcasing your eatery! During this week, participating eateries develop menu items that primarily use locally sourced ingredients. We know that some foods – olive oil, spices or coffee, for example – are not raised in this region but may be necessary. A 30 Mile Meal is a dining experience that includes as many local ingredients as possible. For this promotional week, if your meal includes meats, cheeses, dairy or eggs, seasonal vegetables, greens and fruits, it should be sourced within Northeast Ohio/Western Pennsylvania. If you need help locating sources, we can put you into contact with our partnering farms and producers. We will actively promote your business through our channels and networks.
For this promotional week, our restaurant partners will be seeking out local food sources from NEO/WPA, creating special menu items and promoting the farms and producers that provide the product in their eatery. In addition, we will actively promote your business through our marketing channels and partner network. Get on board as a potential source for our Restaurant Week participants!
