Menus of Change®: The Business of Healthy, Sustainable, Delicious Food Choices is a ground-breaking initiative from The Culinary Institute of America and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health that works to realize a long-term, practical vision integrating optimal nutrition and public health, environmental stewardship and restoration, and social responsibility concerns within the foodservice industry and the culinary profession.
Now in its ninth year, Menus of Change has established a compelling new agenda for the foodservice industry through an annual June leadership summit which will take place in 2021 as a live, interactive virtual event and an ongoing series of tools and guidance for foodservice professionals. The initiative’s thought-leadership includes:
- Showing that changing menus is a powerful, and previously underappreciated, way to drive improvements in our health and our planet.
- Bringing attention to protein, both animal- and plant-based, to show how that macronutrient category has the largest impact on the environment including climate change.
- Making plant-forward dining a mainstream concept in the culinary profession and foodservice industry, with a clear vision for a new way to cook and serve food to others
Dates: June 22 – 24, 2021
Times: Starting at 10am Pacific Standard Time each day
In collaboration with the conference sponsors, we are making this year’s virtual edition of Menus of Change available tuition-free to foodservice operators, with a one-time, non-refundable administrative fee of $25 for live event participants to contribute towards the costs of our interactive platform and digital resources.
