Feast Magazines Awards Features Many Friends of the Food Circle

The Kansas City Food Circle is proud to partner with several of the winningest folks on the food scene in KC! Feast Magazine released their 2015 Feast 50 Awards in the current issue and many of the names on the list are restaurants (and a chef!) that participate in our Eat Local and Organic Dining Card. One of our KCFC Member Farmers even made the list for best cheese maker.
     That's because the best chefs and restaurateurs in the business know that sourcing locally will get the most delicious results. Food that comes from close to home and chefs and restaurateurs that build relationships with local farmers - that makes for a winning combination.
     We are proud to supply these fine establishments and are grateful to all our amazing restaurants who have committed to working with the local, organic, and free-range farmers in our organization. Together these folks bring the best of our region straight to your plates. And to them all we say Thank You!
