What does Mindful Feeding™ consultative services mean?
Beyond Green Sustainable Food Partners (BGP) has performed Mindful Feeding consultative services in institutional kitchens across the continent since 2008. Beyond Green’s Mindful Feeding program serves fabulous locally sourced, scratch-cooked food under budget that kids eat.
Mindful Feeding converges what the customers want to eat, what the cooks want to make, with what the farmers have available. In the alignment of these three components, delicious nutrient dense food grown and cooked with love emerges.
Through listening and engagement, kids’ hearts and minds open to trying new foods and eating healthy. A young child wrote us a note for helping to bring a scratch-cooked, community food-based program to her school saying, “Thanks for listening to us.” When we feel heard, we feel more complete. We become a part of the world and a part of the solutions to today’s complex problems.
The practice of Mindful Feeding consultation influences the health of humanity and the planet, inspires eaters to become their best selves, erases the invisible lines of separation placed in our minds, and contributes to a world that works for everyone.
