The Crossing is encouraging diners to whip out their smartphones and snap away now through October. The restaurant, located at 7823 Forsyth Blvd., in Clayton, is participating in the James Beard Foundation’s Taste America Local Dish Challenge, which highlights local producers and promotes culinary education.

The Crossing will donate $1 from each Rain Crow Ranch Berkshire Bone-In Pork Chop (pictured) sold to the JBF Taste America Drive. And diners who post a picture of their chop to Instagram with the hashtags #Clayton and #JBFTasteAmerica could help a local nonprofit win big bucks, too. JBF will donate $10,000 to the city with the most tagged uploads; The Crossing selected Operation Food Search’s Nutrition and Culinary Education Program as its designated charity.

“This is a great opportunity for us to call attention to all of our local food providers and to make more people aware of the James Beard Foundation,” said chef-owner Jim Fiala in a press release.
