Many South African schools and universities have implemented the Green Monday program, including the University of Cape Town, Somerset College, University of Witwatersrand, and Nelson Mandela University. These plant-based recipes are not only delicious and healthy, but they’ve also been tested for student approval. So yes, kids love them!
HSI/Africa continuously works with local chefs, dietitians, and food service providers to create and maintain a library of Green Monday recipes. Recipes were developed specifically for institutional and corporate use, featuring seasonal fruits and vegetables, grains, legumes and local alternatives that are widely available. If there is a particular dish that is culturally important or very popular at your organization, HSI/Africa is able to work with our culinary partners to create a healthier, plant-based alternative.
Want to implement a Green Monday program but not sure where to start? HSI/Africa has Green Monday toolkits to assist with the implementation of your institutional program from start to finish. These provide information about our program, the benefits of plant-based eating, program strategies, solutions to common challenges, and an action plan with templates for specific institutional settings.
