BOSTON — Foodservice outlets, restaurants, schools, hospitals or workplaces serving at least one whole grain option every day are encouraged to participate in the 5th Annual Whole Grains Challenge during the month of October.
The event is an initiative of Boston-based non-profit Oldways and its Whole Grains Council. “Whole grain consumption is up, and in part this is due to the increased availability of these delicious and healthy grains in restaurants, schools, corporate dining halls and other foodservice outlets,” said Cynthia Harriman, director of Food and Nutrition Strategies for the Whole Grains Council and Oldways.
“Last year’s Whole Grains Challenge submissions were impressive, and we look forward to seeing the creativity of this year’s chefs, dining directors and foodservice operators who are helping to bring whole-grain goodness to their patrons.”
Entries are being accepted from the following 10 institutions: quick-serve restaurants, family/casual restaurants, fine-dining restuarants, lodging institutions, catering institutions, public schools, private schools, colleges, universities, workplaces, healthcare institutions and more.
