ALASKA GROWN RESTAURANT REWARDS PROGRAM
The Alaska Grown Restaurant Rewards Program is designed to reward foodservice partners who strengthen relationships with local growers by purchasing and promoting the use of Alaska Grown specialty crops. An enrolled foodservice will be reimbursed 17% for buying Alaska Grown produce from Alaska Grown members. Funding for this program comes from the USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant for the reimbursement of specialty crops only. For more information about the USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant, visit Specialty Crop Definitions.
In the future we hope to have the funding to reimburse for items such as meat, dairy and aquaculture products. We look forward to seeing more local food options in restaurants all over the State!
