A Bangin’ BLT in Support of Food Justice

Hanover Tomato season is upon us let the BLTs commence.




A tasty message from Salt & Forge and Salt N’ Vinegar.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…. Hanover Tomato season! Salt & Forge are bringing you the Hanover Tomato BLT of your dreams, featuring Bangin’ Pimento Cheese from Soul N’ Vinegar plus extra thick-cut bacon, charred jalapeño mayonnaise, and butter lettuce on toasted country white bread from Albemarle Baking Company.

This year, Salt & Forge has partnered with Soul N’ Vinegar to support Richmond Food Justice Alliance. RFJA is a grassroots, resident-led organization advancing healthy food access by addressing historical inequalities that drive low food access in our communities.

For every BLT sold, Salt & Forge will donate $1 to the Richmond Food Justice Alliance to help support their work, improving food access in Richmond’s most vulnerable communities.

In order to ensure the highest donation possible to RFJA, the Hanover Tomato BLT is not available to order through third party delivery apps such as UberEats and GrubHub. “The focus is on local food, local businesses, local partnerships, and supporting local food alliances. We don’t want third party apps benefitting from this sandwich,” says owner David Hahn.

The special will last through the duration of the Hanover Tomato season, which varies every year dependent on weather and growing conditions. This is typically a 4-6 week window of time.

Salt & Forge serves up gourmet, hand-made sandwiches, salads, and breakfast at 312 N 2nd St in Richmond’s Historic Jackson Ward neighborhood. For more information, visit
