Educating our guests about how their food choices impact the environment, community and personal well being.
Bon Appétit Management Company’s Circle of Responsibility takes a macro view of wellness. We have created an interactive website (www.cafebonappetit.com) that is designed to give customers information about how food choices affect their environment, community and well being. From analyzing issues such as fish farming and industrialized agriculture to providing personal nutrition and physical activity advice from health care professionals, this extensive site is a very valuable resource for Bon Appétit customers and the public alike.
The Circle of Responsibility is also an educational program for our staff. Three interactive on-line modules thoroughly examine how Bon Appétit’s kitchen principles support the environment, the community and personal health. After completing the rigorous training, café staff members are prepared to engage guests and teach them about our company's core sustainability principles and their beneficial effects. In addition, each café prominently displays Circle of Responsibility educational tools that help guests identify foods according to the categories of: health, vegetarian, vegan, organic, locally and responsibly sourced. This program promotes the benefits of sustainable food to thousands of people who eat in Bon Appétit cafés every day.
