Duquesne's Green Center to Offer Program for Restaurants

Duquesne University's Center for Green Industries and Sustainable Business Growth will host restaurateurs, food service workers, farmers and suppliers at an educational and networking seminar emphasizing sustainable and environmentally friendly practices.

The seminar, Restaurant Recipes for Success, will be held on campus on Monday, July 27, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from industry experts from single-location and chain-restaurant levels. Additionally, they will hear about Sustainable Pittsburgh's up and coming Sustainable Restaurant Designation program and have time to network.

Speakers from Eat'n Park Hospitality Group, Bella Sera, Sustainable Pittsburgh and LeanPath will provide insights into consumer and dietary trends, resource efficient restaurant technologies, sourcing and sustainability, and waste reduction strategies. Sustainable Pittsburgh also will present on the development of its Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurants program, an up-and-coming, performance-based program similar to its Green Workplace Challenge and Sustainable Small Business Designation.

The Center for Green Industries is also partnering with the local chapters of the Pennsylvania Restaurant & Lodging Association and the American Culinary Federation for this seminar.

Register online for the program, which will be in Room 101, Rockwell Hall. Cost is $30.
