The Edible Agriculture Tour connects farmers with local chefs and diners to grow awareness of Georgia’s bounty of produce.

About The Georgia Restaurant Association:
The mission of the Georgia Restaurant Association (The GRA) is to serve as the voice of Georgia’s restaurants in Advocacy, Education and Awareness. The GRA was created in response to the belief that an independent restaurant association was needed to represent Georgia’s restaurant industry, which had previously been served by the Georgia Hospitality & Travel Association (GH&TA). Today, the GRA provides a unified voice for an industry comprising over 16,000 foodservice and drinking places in the state of Georgia with total sales in excess of $14 billion and provides more jobs (375,000+) than any other non-government employer in the state.
