Sustainability Initiatives

This year, Meeting of the Minds is pleased to partner with Levy Restaurants at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland & Global Center for Health Innovation to bring delegates healthy and sustainable food choices during the summit. Levy cares about our environment through its commitment to responsible food and product sourcing and waste reduction:

  • They use one-at-a-time napkin dispensers that reduce napkin waste by 56%.
  • They use Eco-friendly, biodegradable/compostable plates, box lunches, cups and flatware products.
  • They utilize a 500 micron filtering process to extend the life of the fryer oil as well as collect and recycle all cooking oil.
  • Their GRIND TO ENERGY program grinds food scraps to create energy for the City of Cleveland by generating measurable sustainability and environmental benefits for the community, including producing nutrient-rich fertilizer, eliminating greenhouse gas emissions and producing energy for electricity and natural gas.
  • Leftover product is donated to The Ed Keating Center through the Cleveland Food Bank.
  • Produce is sourced year-round from a family owned 300-acre vegetable farm that is committed to sustainable agriculture and practices that replenish nutrients depleted from the soil and growing crops through natural means. Wherever possible, products are sourced locally and responsibly raised including antibiotic free poultry, cage-free eggs, and H/A free pork.
  • Situated on the property is a working farm that is home to honey bees vital to the growth of food, chickens that provide eggs, plants and Heritage Breed pigs.
Meeting of the Minds is made possible by the generous support of these organizations:
