  • Sustainable Food Systems offers consulting services that help return simplicity and quality to your existing food service program with better control over your ingredients, menus, recipes and costs.
  • Your food service can become healthier for the community you serve, the environment you live in, and your financial bottom line. We offer a three-fold service: •• Identification and Planning We identify opportunities for implementing simple, sustainable changes based on your food system, needs and clientele to create a realistic action plan. •• Implementation We implement the agreed upon action plan through education, recipe and menu development, staff support, and linkages with local food producers. •• Assessment and Support We periodically assess the impact of changes through consumer feedback, community impact, and financial performance. We then recommend ways to enhance your action plan to ensure continued sustainable growth. Sustainable Food Systems helps institutions and organizations incorporate practices that value and care for the earth, local food producers and food in their dining programs. Food produced and prepared in sustainable ways strengthens our local communities and economies. Let us help you deliver food better.
  • Stop and think about the basic definition of the term ‘sustainable’. If it is said to be something so critical to survival, you can imagine the importance of something as basic as the food we eat. It is pretty important, don’t you think, when we can say that the way we’re producing food today now has the power to impact our planet and ourselves in a negative way?! When we begin to comprehend this alarming fact, we cannot help but understand and commit to the fact that something must be done . And done soon.
