Sustainable Locally-Sourced dining options at Mount Rushmore


Mount Rushmore National Memorial embraces a holistic approach to its food and beverage program named Fresh Forward. Our program provides guests with sustainable and healthy choices while delivering great taste. For healthy and sustainable food and beverage offerings, Fresh Forward considers the types of products offered, agricultural methods, processing, packaging, and transportation, as well as the manner in which we prepare, serve and present to our guests. The program emphasizes several specific elements under the following six-stage strategy and framework:

  • Culinary Purchasing
  • Employee Education & Training
  • Guest Communication
  • Facilities & Services
  • Community Partnerships
  • Monitoring & Improvement

One of our specific initiatives is encouraging our guests to “Choose to be Straw Free.” Over 500 million straws are used daily in the United States ending up in landfills for generations or worse: on the ground, in streams, and in oceans. Join us and leave a Softer Footprint – one straw at a time.
