Circle of Responsibility
Educating our guests about how their food choices impact the environment, community, and personal well-being
In 2003 we launched a new staff-and-guest education program called the Circle of Responsibility that took a macro view of wellness, designed to give our employees and our customers information (both online and in-café) about how food choices affect their environment, community, and well-being. In addition, each café’s menu prominently displays Circle of Responsibility icons that help guests identify foods that are vegetarian, vegan, organic, locally sourced, and more.
For our staff, we offer interactive online modules that examine how Bon Appétit’s kitchen principles support the environment, the community, and personal health. After completing the training, café staff members are prepared to engage guests and teach them about our company’s core sustainability principles and their beneficial effects.
