    Meatless Monday has arrived at BVCHD!

    On 11/29 and 11/30 BVCHD was honored to have representatives from Forward Food, an organization looking to transform the way we eat provide a Culinary Experience for our staff and community members. Forward Food reported that plant-based meat sales have grown at twice the rate of processed meat sales, and are expected to continue rising 11% annually through 2020.  People are also eating more whole, plant-based foods. “Consumers—and not just vegetarians—are warming up to products like tempeh, tofu, and seitan that can stand in for meat,” NPR reports.  By 2054, analysts predict that plant-based proteins will make up one third of the protein market. Forward Foods mission is to offer a chance to feed more, with less…

    As a result, BVCHD has partnered with many of our food suppliers and Forward Food to offer Meatless Mondays!

    Meatless Monday is global movement with a simple message: once a week, cut the meat. Launched in 2003, Meatless Monday is a non-profit initiative of The MondayCampaigns, working in collaboration with the Center for a Livable Future (CLF) at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
