Mountain West Cider Partners with The Green Urban Lunchbox
Mountain West Cider has partnered with The Green Urban Lunchbox to produce a unique, hyper-local hard cider for the sixth year in a row. The cider is produced annually using apples harvested in the Salt Lake Valley that would otherwise have gone to waste. The Green Urban Lunchbox receives a portion of the proceeds from this cider, furthering their mission to prevent food waste and end urban food deserts.

“On a cool, sunny Friday in late October, volunteers gathered in the courtyard at Salt Lake City’s Mountain West Cider with a mission- to turn 5,000 pounds of apples, gathered from orchards and backyards all over Salt Lake, into apple juice and, eventually, hard cider. “In past years, [during] production of the cider, over 20 different varieties of apples were identified as contributing to the juice,” said Jeff Carleton, owner/founder of Mountain West, based at 425 N. 400 W. in Salt Lake City.”
