About the Monadnock Restaurant Project
So far, we have purchased $10,000 in gift cards from various locally owned restaurants
in Keene. We then dispersed these gift cards to community members through partnering businesses, C&S Wholesale Grocers, Nanotech, and Savings Bank of Walpole. These businesses shared gift cards with their staff with the charge to spend these cards quickly, providing an immediate shot in the arm to Keene's local restaurant economy this winter.
These cards are not a gift but a call to action. We anticipate that community members will spend at least twice the amount of what their gift card is worth, doubling the project’s impact by infusing $20,000 into these cash-strapped businesses. The more we spend locally, the more dollars we reinvest in our local economy.
We’re now raising funds to fuel another round of this project in March – so we can include more restaurants and produce a larger positive ripple effect in our community. Eat, drink and build community!
