walking tours

Check out the waste-reducing magic that goes on in some of the most forward-thinking kitchens in various neighborhoods in DC. On our tours, you’ll hear directly from restaurant management about how they minimize waste, keep their dining rooms sustainable and discover amazing flavor profiles along the way.

Can’t wait? Take the virtual tour of our first walk in the fall of 2018. Because we rely on restaurants to donate the food and the time, each tour happens only once and we usually have a waitlist. Make sure to follow us on social media to get your tickets as soon as they’re available!

Contact us to get the scoop on our next tour before we tell everyone else.

Mark your calendars—RescueDishDC 2019 is scheduled for July 13-20!

One week each year, restaurants across the city showcase their best upcycled-ingredient dishes and drinks and tell great stories about the magic they’ve conjured. During RescueDishDC, you’ll encounter everything from carrot greens to ricotta made from leftover milk in a barista’s steamer pitcher.

Is your restaurant interested in participating? Contact us to get involved.

evenings out

About once a quarter, we head to a restaurant with a great sustainability story. Sometimes a chef speaks about maintaining a sustainable kitchen. Other times we just have a simple happy hour after work. Still other times, we might do something entirely different—check back for details on an upcoming cocktail hour and photo show!


Contact us and we’ll send you an invite next time we’re headed out.
