Passionate about local food and getting more of it on the menu of your favorite restaurants? We invite you to join us and volunteer for the Monadnock Menus Program!
We need writers, photographers and volunteers to conduct interviews with farmers and restaurant owners. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Monadnock Menus Goals:

Have you eaten there?? Let us know how it is! Send us some pictures and some local highlights.
Since the beginning of our spring membership drive at the beginning April, 10 restaurants have signed onto the Monadnock Menus project, showing their dedication and support for locally produced food. Please visit our new ‘Members’ page to see who is ‘Getting Local on the Menu’ and look for the Monadnock Menus decal while you’re out in the region looking for a bite to eat that’s a little bit fresher and from closer to home.
Is your favorite restaurant not on our list of members? Ask them if they know about our program! Give them a local request card to let them know you’d like to see more local food on the menu and thank them for making a commitment to supporting more local farms, value-added producers and businesses.
Hope you all are enjoying the first greens of the season!

“Think of Swanzey and what comes to mind? The town’s oxen mascots, Monadnock Regional High School, and maybe a covered bridge or two.
How about organic pizza topped with locally grown fresh vegetables (served
in recyclable containers with compostable utensils), handmade by kind and
cheerful people dedicated to their community?
That’s exactly what the new Hillside Pizza, located on Route 32 in front of Arnone’s Family Fun Center, is bringing to the Monadnock Region.”
