sweetgreen love

October 18, 2010

OK, does everyone know how awesome local business sweetgreen is? From participating in DC Capital Area Food Bank’s Farm to School Week, where restaurants pair up with schools to teach kids about healthy local foods, to enthusiastically donating delicious wraps to Kitchen of Innovation, sweetgreen is a local business that knows how to support the community, while serving up tasty and nutritious meals.

Kate points out that their philosophy is aligned with that of KOI – “‘keep it real. care about your impact. share your gifts.’ Sweetgreen states its values as: “We believe we are all put on the planet with the potential to use our talents to make a difference, even if that difference is just a few extra smiles a day on the faces of our friends. No man is an island. We recognize and celebrate our connections.” When I hear people talk about food this way, it makes me think of great performances and exhibits which also emphasize our relationships with one another and the impact of the choices we make. In other words, lots of parallels can be drawn between food and the arts as the things that nourish us and give us sustenance.” They also use ingredients from local farmers, another way of nurturing and supporting the DC area.

If you enjoy the wraps at KOI (and the odds are good that you will!), stop by when you’re in Capitol Hill, Georgetown, Dupont, Logan Circle, Bethesda, or Reston, and return the love!
