April is Earth Month!

April is Earth Month, and Earth Day is April 22. As good stewards of the Earth, here at Hoya Hospitality we’re all about the concept of Healthy People, Healthy Planet.

Putting plants more at the center of your plate has shown to lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain cancers. There are also environmental benefits to making food choices that include less meat

Beef production requires 20x more land and emits 20x more greenhouse gas emissions per unit of edible protein than plant-based protein sources such as beans, peas and lentils. (World Resources Institute) It takes about 2,000 gallons of water to produce one pound of beef.

Plant forward menu options support our commitments to environmental sustainability and health and wellness. Check out our vegan and vegetarian options this month throughout campus!
