Sustainability

One Meal a Day

The 2015-2016 school year is the first year MUSE is officially  and entirely  a plant-based school. Our commitment to plant-based food is called “One Meal a Day for the Planet.” Each day, our MUSE Kitchen staff prepare 100% plant-based lunches and snacks for the MUSE community.

Our transition to a plant-based meal program is based upon MUSE’s commitment to sustainability. Food choice is the most efficient way to reduce our impact on the environment.  The typical American diet uses up to ten times more land than plant based diet.
 
By eating one plant-based meal a day, the average American can reduce their total water footprint by 55,613 gallons - about 17 bathtubs full of water!
