At Next Bites we tackle environmental preservation from a number of angles. We focus our energy on educating the public about sustainable dining options with resources and lifestyle guides. We also specialize in assisting foodservice operators toward a Guaranteed Green certification. By increasing the availability and accessibility of environmentally responsible goods, services, and foodstuffs to the Chicago foodservice community we have continued to reduce Chicago’s foodservice industry’s collective environmental footprint.
Whether you're an individual or business supporter, corporate partner, foodservice member, or Guaranteed Green foodservice member, your contribution will directly support our mission of conservation by enabling us to grow our programs and outreach such as the Guaranteed Green dining guide, sustainable food education, and Guaranteed Green sustainability assistance programs.
Thank you for investing in Chicago’s green future!
Wanting to support our mission in other ways? GCRC is always looking for volunteers at events, help in the office, or even a second opinion interview. If you have an interest, let’s make a connection. Foodservice sustainability is a mission for all!
As no two companies, organizations, or individuals are truly identical, the terms and benefits of all GCRC sponsorships and corporate partnerships are custom tailored to best meet the needs of both parties.
In order to qualify for a partnership with GCRC we require that certain standards are met. If you identify with any of the fields below then you are qualified to partake in a sponsorship or corporate partnership opportunity.
Guaranteed Green Restaurants
Parent company of a Guaranteed Green Restaurant
Suppliers, Manufacturers, or Providers of Guaranteed Green Products or Services
Only need one or more Guaranteed Green products or services to qualify
In order for a product or service to qualify as Guaranteed Green, it must fulfill the following requirement:
Approved by an independent 3rd party certifying agency generally recognized within that industry for its credibility in validating the sustainability claims of the product. (e.g. Green Seal Certified cleaning supplies.)
If no qualifying third-party certification exists, the product, service or representative samples of the product line must have been recommended and field tested for efficacy for a minimum of 30 days by a GCRC member.
