Getting our school to move toward climate friendly lunch options

The Institute is focusing on climate change this year. In that vein, we wanted to see where we could have direct impact on climate stabilizing behavior directly within our community. One of the ways to do this is by getting people to make the choice to shift their diets to less meat. In order to facilitate this, we met with the Boulder Valley School District Food Services along with a local purveyor of tempeh, Griffin Giordano, of Project Umami. We’re proposing an ad campaign to inform and highlight the advantages of less meat and more local food in dietary choices. Keep an eye out at your local school for our work. We’ll let you know how it goes.
