As more consumers seek transparency in a food system and care for their health, the animals, the agricultural workers, and the planet, more leaders are stepping up to the challenge of meeting this demand within the constraints of their existing budgets.
We still have a long way to reach human, economic, social, and environmental sustainability, but Werner Erhard explains, “Integrity is a mountain with no top. Therefore those who set off on this task must learn to enjoy climbing because there is no end to the process. And as the climb continues life continues to get better.”
In 2018 we're proud to have worked with the Hawai‘i public schools to pilot a farm to school program at Mililani High School that resulted in a semester savings of $107,658 while at the same time increasing the number of students who chose to eat school lunches by 57% with more local and fresh food. The program continues to
throughout the state.
Also in 2018, we were excited to begin working with Kona Community Hospital and Hawai‘i Health Systems Corporation Kaua‘i Region in making healthy food for the health care system. Kona Community Hospital employees and patients have seen more than 65 new recipes including fresh version of old favorites and new highlights such as Mexican lasagna, gluten-free broccoli cashew alfredo, and honey ginger vegetable stir-fry.
We're looking forward to climbing higher in 2019.
Happy holidays from all of us at Beyond Green. Wishing you peace and good food.
