  Our Philosophy | Meet John Turenne | The SFS Team


Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) is one of the first companies to bridge conventional and sustainable food dining.

The SFS Team has transformed conservative institutional food service programs, whether healthcare facilities, public or private schools, universities or business dining, from conventional to sustainable food service to deliver a healthier product for customers, local economies and the planet.


The SFS team has experienced the realities of conventional food service and is personally and professionally committed to working in ways that motivate and inspire both your food service staff and your clientele to adopt healthier food practices.

Our clients feel confident and at ease about teaming with SFS because of our 30 years of experience in the food service industry, our results and our commitment to supporting them during the transition. Our knowledge base is grounded in research and professional practice.


No two dining programs are the same; nor do they need to be. Sustainable Food Systems will work with you to achieve your specific goals and objectives based on an evaluation of your existing systems and resources.

To make the world a better place through better food, Sustainable Food Systems has:

Paired educational and health care institutions with local agricultural communities to deliver a healthier product for customers, local economies and the planet.

Transitioned food service programs from canned goods and frozen boxes to fresh fruits and vegetables and whole foods through customized staff development programs.

Teamed with public school systems to transition to serving fresher, healthier meals while remaining true to the USDA Food Service Guidelines.

Integrated the kitchen into the classroom setting by involving students in making good food choices, preparing foods, and learning about nutrition in private school settings.

Designed and implemented wellness policies and procedures that included the redesign of facility menus to include fresh fruit and vegetables, whole foods and, upon request, hormone and antibiotic-free foods.

Converted unorganized food service systems to ones that use formal benchmarking systems to be able to identify and quantify financial performance, and therefore save dollars.

Sustainable Food Systems is available to help your dining program transition to a healthier, more sustainable food service. Contact us at 203.294.9683 or via email at [email protected] to learn how we can work together to achieve your goals.
