It is Dine Sustainably Week again in Duluth and a handful of restaurants are making a push to bring fresh local food to the table to let customers know what sustainable values are all about.

Duluth Grill is just one taking part and the business already uses produce from local gardens with one built right in their parking lot. The owners are part of the Sustainable Twin Ports group and want residents to help support the culture change.

The goal is to raise awareness about the benefits of a little conservation. Duluth Grill Owner Tom Hanson says sustainable values are good for everyone from customers to employees.

“The benefit that our customers see is a lot of fresh local foods. We have an employment base that is paid. We attempt to give them good living wages and keep them as restaurant employees so from a service aspect customers are getting to know our staff. They have a great, consistent product by trained professionals,” Hanson said.

There is much more to Dine Sustainably Week and the participating restaurants will have more information on location throughout the week. Local restaurants taking part include At Sara's Table, Canal Park Brewery, Duluth Grill, Fitger's Brewhouse, How Sweet It Is Cakes and Tycoon's Alehouse and Eatery.

Local vendors and producers also signed on as sponsors including Alakef Coffee Roasters, Duluth Coffee Company, Lake Superior Brewing Company, Locally Laid Egg Company, Upper Lakes Foods, and Vikre Distillery.
