Northeast Ohio Farm to Table Restaurant Analysis

A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome that outlines how credit criteria are met and any positive measurable outcomes associated with the innovation:
As the “farm to table” trend has grown in Cleveland’s thriving restaurant scene, green business students at Baldwin Wallace University spent the fall semester testing the sustainable food claims of local restaurants. Dr. David Krueger’s class ultimately developed an honor roll of restaurants that best fulfill the promise to serve local food. To carry out their project, Krueger’s students identified 37 restaurants in Greater Cleveland that make sustainable or local food claims on their websites, including online menus, and then analyzed the assertions according to a comprehensive scorecard developed in class. This research projecdt was ultimately featured on WVIZ-TV ideastream news program and in the Cleveland Scene, a local news outlet.
