This initiative is supported by the GRACE Communications Foundation and EatWellGuide.org, which is a project of GRACE
In support of the Sustainable Table, Slow Food, Buy Fresh Buy Local and Know Your Farmer food movements, the guide is intended to allow the public to curate their palate preferences as the food landscape of Jersey City evolves. One goal of the project is to encourage more commercial establishments to support Farmers and to provide healthy meal choices to the public. Another goal is to emphasize the importance of recycling food scraps, which is highlighted in SJC’s introductory message on the mobile friendly site. This EWG initiative is associated with SJC's GOOD FOOD NOW! Project.
The SJC EAT WELL GUIDE for Jersey City is now one of 17 nationally listed Major City Sustainable Food Guides, naming JC as a healthy food destination for travelers and for those who live and work in Jersey City NJ. Guides catalog here http://www.eatwellguide.org/guides
