Rye Brook, N.Y. (October 2, 2014) – Leading U.S. contract foodservice provider, Chartwells Higher Education Dining Services, is proud to be a member of AASHE and will exhibit at North America's largest higher education sustainability conference being held in Portland, Oregon October 26-29, 2014. With nearly 2,000 participants, including higher education sustainability professionals and students, attendees come together at AASHE 2014 to network and share new innovations, activities, frameworks, learning outcomes, tools, strategies, research, theory and leadership initiatives that are changing the face of sustainability on campuses and surrounding communities.

San Francisco-based Hampton Creek is a company dedicated to bringing healthier and affordable food to everyone, everywhere. Through Chartwells, Hampton Creek will be offering a better, sustainably produced cookie called Just Cookies to students at over 260 colleges and universities nationwide in the upcoming year. Chartwells has also invited Hampton Creek to its booth this year at the AASHE conference to reach an even wider audience dedicated to higher education sustainability efforts. Josh Tetrick, Hampton Creek CEO & Founder, said, "We couldn't possibly be more proud to join the Chartwells team for this event. The opportunity to partner with them for our launch this year, given our shared commitment to delicious and good food, has been extraordinary."

According to Patti Girardi, Chartwells' Vice President of Marketing and Creative Services, "Last year we introduced Chartwells' Green Fleet at AASHE which was a new bicycle usage program aimed at improving associates' health, wellness, and the environment on college campuses.  We also retrofitted a blender with a bicycle so guests visiting our booth could exercise while generating power to churn their own smoothies. This year at AASHE we invited world renowned Hampton Creek to share freshly baked cookies at the show. We couldn't think of a better way to promote a great tasting product that is truly produced sustainably, would excite attendees and fit the conference's objective of sharing new innovations with our higher education colleagues."
