Recognizing Earth Day at your cafeteria
This April 22, Sodexo cafes and cafeterias at Lions Gate, Richmond, St. Paul’s, UBC and VGH will recognize Earth Day by offering up a sustainable seafood dish.
Seafood consumption has doubled over the last 40 years, but fish stocks have not kept pace. Fish is an important part of healthy diets and constitutes 17% of the global population’s protein intake. In addition, fish and seafood support the livelihoods of 10-12% of the world’s population, most of them in the developing world. For these reasons, Sodexo has made sustainable seafood a cornerstone of its sustainable sourcing approach.
As part of its Better Tomorrow Plan Sodexo has committed to contracting all of its seafood from sustainable sources and with a global reach of 80 countries and nearly 10.1 million people reached each day, this commitment will have a real impact worldwide.
Come in to any of our cafeterias this Earth Day (April 22) and enjoy our chef’s signature creation: Cajun-seared haddock with maple lime butter.
