How Carrot Gold Works

Our partners are setting the standard for locally sourced, sustainable food service in Kansas City. This customizable program lets restaurants, hospitals, colleges and corporations “start where they are” and move their operations toward their own ideal level of excellence in three categories:

  1. Local food sourcing
  2. Sustainable kitchen practices
  3. Healthy eating

Through Carrot Gold, we recognize businesses like yours for supporting local farmers, acting sustainably, and offering healthy menu choices. Your participation will associate you with a strong brand, net you great marketing opportunities and show Kansas City you are committed to making our city a better place to live.

Do you buy food from local growers? Do you recycle, compost or use energy efficient appliances? Do you offer health conscious menu items? If you do, you may already qualify for Carrot Gold.

How it Works (in 3 easy steps)

  1. Take the Readiness Survey to tell us what you’re already doing in regards to local food sourcing, sustainable kitchen practices and healthy menus. Take the Survey
  2. We’ll confirm with you in person and ask you to commit to keep doing those things for the calendar year.  Then you will officially be enrolled in Carrot Gold!
  3. We’ll highlight your efforts throughout the year according to your level. This can include press releases, profiles on our website, mentions in quarterly campaigns and more.
