2019 Menus of Change
June 18 - June 20
Menus of Change®: The Business of Healthy, Sustainable, Delicious Food Choices is a ground-breaking leadership initiative launched in 2012 by 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. In just its first five years, Menus of Change has established a compelling new agenda for the foodservice industry through an annual leadership summit at the CIA’s Hyde Park campus, an annual report on the state of the industry, and an ongoing series of tools and guidance for foodservice professionals. Menus of Change also informs The Culinary Institute of America’s approach to educating the next generation of culinary and business leaders.
The goal of Menus of Change: The Business of Healthy, Sustainable, Delicious Food Choices is to create and grow a world-class structure of collaboration between
leaders in nutrition research and public health, the environmental sciences and sustainability, the culinary arts, and business and management to consider and incubate new models of food and foodservice innovation that anticipate future imperatives and are economically sustainable. Menus of Change also strives to provide the next generation of culinary and business leaders the skills and knowledge to work at the intersection of health, environmental, and social concerns.
