Eater x NBA: The California Arena That Boasts Some of the Best Food in the NBA

The Sacramento Kings’ solar powered arena, Golden 1 Center, is the most environmentally-friendly stadium in the league. 90% of the food served in the stadium comes from within a 150-mile radius. Additionally, all unsold food goes to local food banks, and the ‘green waste’ goes back to local soil. Even their leftover fryer oil is recycled as diesel fuel by a local family business. Beyond environmental, Golden 1 Center boasts some of the best food of all the NBA arenas. With wood fired pizzas, sushi, bahn mi, BBQ and a plethora of vegan options, this arena is the all-star food court for athletes and fans needing a delicious game-time meal. This episode will go farm-to-arena and behind-the-scenes of this state-of-the-art venue to explain its initiatives and innovation.
