"The café is a case study of sustainable food in some of America's most treasured places. In addition to sourcing locally, we use solar panels and wind turbines to ensure the lowest impact presence." – Madeline Leslie, Food and BeverageCrissy Field is good for many things: getting your sweat on, priceless views and killer turkey sandwiches. Tucked in to the East Beach of Crissy Field near the Marina Gate entrance to the Presidio, is Beach Hut Café & Snack Bar. It opened two years ago under a program called Food for the Parks, which aims to connect the food we eat with conservation. By this summer, the café aims to have 90% of their ingredients coming from within a 100-mile radius. Already falling into that category is the bottled-in-Sonoma Revive Raw Kombucha, which comes in a nifty bottle the company collects to re-fill. It’s not hard to connect your meal with conservation efforts while enjoying views of the Bay with the gorgeous Golden Gate Bridge as a backdrop.
