MN Green Restaurant Tour 2021

Minnesota Green Restaurant Tour 2021

Clean Water Action's Field to Fork program wants to support the small businesses that are making a difference in our community. We have chosen 20 different restaurants that have met our sustainability standards and created a passport you can use to support their efforts (while enjoying delicious food!). Dine in, take out, or delivery all count! Have restaurant staff or your delivery person sign your passport, and once you have visited at least 5 let us know to be entered into a raffle to win $25 sustainable dining gift cards!

Sign up below to get your passport. Happy dining!
