Cafeteria Consciousness

This is progress from an unexpected quarter -- students are pressing their college cafeterias to serve healthier, locally-grown, environmentally-sensitive food, and it's working!
Bon App├ętit, which serves 80 million meals a year at campus and corporate facilities, has launched a low-carbon diet initiative, reducing food waste, promoting composting, educating guests about their food choices and cutting back on beef purchases by 33 percent systemwide between 2007 and 2009.
I spent a long time in college, and I never saw decent food in the cafeteria. The world certainly is changing.
