OUR IMPACT

National studies indicate that approximately 1.5 lbs. of trash are produced for each restaurant meal served- meaning that the average restaurant produces 50,000 lbs. of garbage annually. Typically, close to 95% of this waste is recyclable or compostable.

Project Green Fork was founded specifically because of these statistics, and our goal is to create a more sustainable Mid-South by helping reduce environmental impacts, with a focus on strengthening homegrown restaurants.

  • Our friends at @cordeliasmarket provided such a delicious spread for our Fall Fundraiser that we HAD to have them back for this year's Loving Local, which is TONIGHT! Ticket link in bio!
.
Cordelia’s Market is a true throwback to the days when your neighborhood grocery was as much of a community center as it was a place to stock your fridge and pantry. Since the day they opened their doors 20 years ago, their mission has been to serve their neighborhood not just by ensuring that all of their grocery needs are met, but also by hosting community gatherings as a way to ensure that the neighborhood has a place to congregate without having to leave “the island.”
.
Along with grocery items and a fantastic selection of beer and wine, Cordelia’s has increased the size of their Project Green Fork-certified cafe space and renamed it “Table & Taps.” Cordelia’s Market aims to have an ever-changing menu that caters to their wide range of customer pallets, while producing very little food waste.
.
For them, being a good neighbor means following environmentally sustainable practices whenever possible, such as supporting local producers. In February, Cordelia’s became the first local grocery store in the Memphis area to eliminate the use of plastic bags!
