GREENSBURG, PA – The Westmoreland Museum of American Art is pleased to announce that as part of its grand reopening in late October it will debut a farm-to-table café cart in partnership with The Supper Club, a restaurant located in downtown Greensburg.
In keeping with The Westmoreland’s dedication to being kind to the planet through its new building’s LEED® Gold certification, which recognizes best-in-class green building strategies and practices, the café cart will source from local farmers and follow sustainable protocol. Housed in the Paul and Carol Evanson Community Room, which is part of the Museum’s new LEED® Gold space, the menu will be created by The Supper Club’s executive chef Greg Andrews, known in the community for his dedication to local, fresh food.
“I see this partnership as a wonderful way to both support a local business and increase awareness of green initiatives for a better planet,” says The Richard M. Scaife Director/CEO Judith O’Toole.
Chef Greg Andrews adds, “We feel that local farm-to-table dining is the most direct way for our guests to get the freshest and most flavorful food our region has to offer. The café cart will enhance the visitor’s experience and give them access to good food and hospitality.”
When the Museum reopens, the WMAA café cart will be open from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday, and admission is not required in order to dine.
