Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and George Chavel, President of Sodexo, North America have offered their endorsements of Healthy Fare for Kids. These leaders support the good work Healthy Fare for Kids has done through the partnership with the Shedd Aquarium and its food service supplier, Sodexo.
Please read the news release which includes the endorsements and all the information about Healthy Fare for Kids launching at the Shedd Aquarium.
Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium has kicked off a partnership with Healthy Fare for Kids and Sodexo, the aquarium’s food service provider, bringing healthy and delicious children’s menu options to their food concessions. The Shedd Aquarium is the first cultural venue to align with Healthy Fare for Kids, as well as Sodexo’s first site.
The Shedd Aquarium is visited by over 2.5 million people each year, almost one million of those are children. The perfect target for Healthy Fare for Kid’s.
Both the Shedd and Sodexo embraced the concept of bringing HFFK into the Shedd and have been very supportive and generous in getting our program and it’s food created and launched. Find our logo in the Bubblenet on a grab and go, or on the menu boards offering antibiotic-free chicken sliders or low-fat baked cheese quesadillas. Or order off the Soundings Cafe menu a griddled organic peanut-butter-and-banana pressed sandwich or an antibiotic-free Turkey Joe. All Healthy Fare for Kids’ items come witha choice of an organic milk box or water bottle.
Visit the Shedd Aquarium today, the most popular aquarium in the country. It’s a fantastic destination for families and, now, a delicious and healthy one for kids.
Healthy Fare for Kid’s participating chef, Paul Virant of Chicago’s Vie Restaurant and Perennial Virant, has been nominated for a 2013 James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef, Great Lakes.
Congratulations to a fabulous chef and great food advocate who’s made a significant contribution to the good food movement in Chicago and beyond.
