Alice Waters opened Chez Panisse in 1971, becoming one of the first proponents of using local, organic, seasonal foods whenever possible. Her current initiatives include the Edible Schoolyard Project, the School Lunch Initiative, and the Yale Sustainable Food Project. Since 2003, she has served as Vice President of Slow Food International.
Chino Family Farm has developed a cult status among local restaurants for providing pristine, fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables. Their farm stand, officially called The Vegetable Stand at Chino Farm, is open to the public.
