Huey’s Restaurant at 1927 Madison Ave. in Midtown Memphis has earned the Project Green Fork designation for implementing environmentally friendly management practices. Project Green Fork is a local organization that contributes to a sustainable Mid-South by helping restaurants reduce environmental impact. Requirements for the designation include eliminating polystyrene packaging, establishing a composting program, utilizing non-toxic cleaners, and taking steps to reduce pollution and energy and water consumption.

“We knew going green was the right thing to do for our customers, our children and the environment,” co-owner and vice-president of operations for Huey’s Ashley Boggs Williams said in a statement. “We also knew our employees in Midtown would really buy into the idea. Project Green Fork provided guidelines to help us reach our goal.”

Huey’s Midtown is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
