Graze 2019 Designated Restaurant Contest

Graze is a month-long celebration of the food and people that make up Pittsburgh’s sustainable restaurant community.

How It Works:

Pittsburghers will be encouraged to dine at designated Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurants throughout the month of July while sharing their moments on social media for a chance to win a unique farm-to-table dinner experience for them and a guest at Churchview Farm. At the end of the month, 15 people will be selected to enjoy eight courses prepared by Chefs Neil Blazin, Bill Fuller, Jessica Lewis, and Elsa Santos on Monday, August 5th on this one-of-a-kind third generation sustainable family farmette.

Restaurants Can Win, Too!

In addition to patrons, 10 winning restaurants will be awarded with two seats so that you, too, can revel in this special dinner experience. To be entered to win, post photos reflective of your sustainable actions to your restaurant’s Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram account. You must include #GrazePGH and tag @SPRpgh to qualify. Each post is an entry to win.

Not only can Graze Pittsburgh help drive patronage to your business, but by sharing your sustainability commitments publicly, you’re educating your crew, sharing your story, and helping to build vibrant communities and a healthy environment.
