MRG supports GGS (Growing Great Schools)
Our Hartford and W. Hartford restaurants feature desserts made with locally grown apples
By Max Restaurant Group
This weekend, November 2, 3, & 4, four Max restaurants will be featuring dessert made with locally-grown apples to raise money for Growing Great Schools (GGS). Participating Max restaurants are Max Downtown & Trumbull Kitchen in Hartford and Max's Oyster Bar and Max Burger in West Hartford.
Buy a "Chef's choice" apple dessert this weekend and a portion of the proceeds will benefit GGS.
GGS is a parent advocacy group developed by committed parents to introduce fresh and local food to the West Hartford lunch program, and to teach students about being a part of a sustainable, local food system. GGS also runs a successful "Chefs Move to School" program, part of First Lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move!" campaign. This great program pairs chefs (including our own Hunter Morton (Max Downtown) and Chris Torla (Trumbull Kitchen) with local schools in order to educate children and show that nutriution can be fun.
