Has your foodservice business implemented measures to address sustainability? If so, your business may be eligible for a $5000 grant from Hobart Center for Foodservice Sustainability (HCFS).
Individuals and companies can apply by submitting a case study of demonstrating how their program addresses sustainability challenges such as reducing energy and water use; decreasing wastewater or solid waste; or implementing Farm-to-Fork programs or other combined programs. Descriptions of specific foodservice equipment used to achieve sustainability goals, including ENERGY STAR®-qualified equipment, is also encouraged.
The recipient will use the proceeds to invest in additional sustainability efforts. Submissions are open now through August and the winner will be announced in November.
