Tucson Originals Rewards Program is out and the new Eat Local Tucson is in starting Saturday.

Here's how it will work: The points you've accumulated with the Rewards card will roll over into the Eat Local program. The new program is not affiliated with Tucson Originals.

Thirteen Tucson restaurants have joined the campaign: Bluefin Seafood Bistro and its sister restaurant Kingfisher Bar and Grill; Dakota Cafe; Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails; Frankie's Philadelphia Cheesesteaks; Ghini's French Caffe; Lodge On The Desert; Mama Louisa's; Pastiche; all three Risky Business locations; and Tavolino.

Organizers say another 20 restaurants will join the group in the next six months.

The rewards program allows diners to accumulate points for discounts at participating restaurants. You also can use the card in 12 cities across the U.S., including Phoenix later this summer after Eat Local Phoenix launches in August.
