Local Green Atlanta is a fast casual restaurant whose mission is to redefine healthy, affordable food for all by creating an ecosystem based on trust and accountability. WE provide you with a culinary experience focused on your health, that tastes good and helps you feel good, while giving you a cultural experience that binds us as a community.
Local Green Atlanta was birthed out of the desire to provide wholesome food options to the residents in Atlanta’s Westside community. With our affordable and nutritious menu selections, we hope to inspire change, advance palates, improve health habits and end food deserts in Atlanta's Westside and beyond.
A lack of access to fresh and wholesome foods is strongly correlated to higher rates of diabetes and other chronic conditions. Our mission is to reduce health disparities in underserved populations by providing healthier food choices to communities who need it most.
Our focus is to shine the light on nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables; therefore, we serve a mostly plant-based menu. With our vegan, vegetarian and pescatarian menu options, we strive to appeal to the tastes of the urban palate while providing cuisine rich in fiber, healthy fats, vitamins and other nutrients.
"The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members." – Coretta Scott King
A legend in the Atlanta music scene, Zachary “Big Zak” Wallace has penned chart-topping hits for some of the industry’s biggest names. Born in Southwest Atlanta, Wallace grew up in a food desert, where he experienced an environment plagued with empty calories, high fats and sky-high sodium levels. Wallace saw first-hand the effects of food insecurity and how poor eating habits frustrated the health and wellbeing of his community. In 2017, he sought out to make a difference. Starting with a Local Green Atlanta food truck, Wallace wanted to spread an awareness for tasty, fulfilling plant-based cuisine in these Atlanta communities. Now, his Vine City restaurant, Local Green Atlanta, continues to spread that message, serving not just health—but hope.
Our culture is so rich, yet our habits are so poor. Local Green exist out of a necessity. There was nothing in the community like this. So I took a gamble...on us."
