Story has joined more than 100 other restaurants in the James Beard Foundation’s (JBF) Taste America Local Dish Challenge.
Foodies nationwide can show their local pride by participating in this social media-driven competition, which is part of the James Beard Foundation’s Taste America: Local Flavor from Coast to Coast, 10-city tour, September 20 through October 19.
Chef Carl Thorne-Thomsen, JBF semi-finalist nominee and FOOD & WINE magazine’s “The People’s Best New Chef Midwest,” has chosen to feature a Kansas City Strip Steak with Gibbs Road Farm potatoes and cipollini onions and Jordy’s honey to showcase the best of the local food scene in Kansas City. From September 1 through October 31, Story will donate $1 from each dish sold to the JBF Taste America Education Drive, which supports JBF’s educational programs on topics surrounding our country’s food system.
Diners can support the JBF Taste America Local Dish Challenge by visiting Story September through October and completing a list on jbftasteamerica.org/local-dish. Diners can also order the Taste America dish, take a photo of the dish and post to Instagram with #JBFTasteamerica and the hashtag of your city.
When the promotion concludes at 11:59 p.m. eastern time on October 31, the city with the most Instagram photo uploads will be declared the winner and receive a donation from JBF in the amount of $10,000 or 10% of the proceeds raised nationally, whichever is higher.
The challenge has already started, so head to Story (3931 W. 69th Terr., Prairie Village) and eat up but not before you take a photo. For more information on James Beard Foundation’s Taste America, visit jbftasteamerica.org.
