The proceeds, 100% of them from the grand opening today of the Baltimore location in Harbor East , November 16 will be going to their sweetgreen in schools Baltimore partner, Living Classrooms Foundation.
Sweetgreen a simple but profound concept of creating a destination for tasty food that is good for you and sourced locally was a brainchild of three Georgetown University graduates back in 2007.

Transparency is one of the key components at Sweetgreen, both literally and figuratively.
