GLEN ROCK – The Glen Rock Environmental Commission and Green Team has created the very first Glen Rock Restaurant Week.
Running August 23-29, 2017, locals will be able to participate in a value-priced dining experience taking place at a variety of Glen Rock restaurants from fine dining to casual dining. Both lunch and dinner options will be available and the pricing will vary from restaurant to restaurant.
The goal of this event is to encourage residents in Glen Rock and surrounding towns to eat local.
Why is eating local so important? Sustainable Jersey reports that, “Building and supporting a strong local economy is one of the key principles of creating a sustainable community.”
Arati Kreibich, leader of the Glen Rock Green Team, said, “Not only will restaurant week help our local eateries and bring our community together, it will also help us cut down on air pollution since many of the restaurants in Glen Rock are walkable, or at the very least, a short drive away.”
