Fresh Ideas Food Service Management, in partnership with the Humane Society of the United States, introduces Mindful Fork; a fresh, creative plant-based food concept debuting at colleges and universities, K-12 schools, senior living facilities, and corporate campuses this fall. A chef-driven initiative, Mindful Fork includes innovative menu items spanning lunch and dinner entrees, quick-service options, allergen-friendly dishes, and desserts. Starting in August, thousands of guests will discover Mindful Fork and enjoy a wide range of delicious plant-based foods.
“First and foremost, along with our partners at the Humane Society, we’ve created irresistible food that just so happens to be plant-based. We’re thrilled that Mindful Fork is now a focal point for our culinary programs going forward” remarked Chef Carl Lovett, Vice-President of Culinary at Fresh Ideas. “These delicious dishes will satisfy everyone from diehard meat-eaters to flexitarians to vegans. We’re excited to continue to expand this initiative to eventually provide one plant-based offering for every meat-based option.”
Chef Jenn DiFrancesco, a Culinary Specialist at the Humane Society, added “in collaboration with Fresh Ideas’ culinary team, we not only produced craveable plant-based recipes, our partnership also created a concept that satisfies skyrocketing demand for plant-based foods among people of all ages.”
