Zak Wallace

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."
