Greg Christian is a highly successful consultant, chef, author, and entrepreneur offering solutions to help transform foodservice into a more sustainable entity. Greg’s efforts as founder and developer of the Organic School Project (OSP) have been recognized on a national as well as local level. This initiative provided a great opportunity to change the bleak landscape of public school lunches in Chicago. The ‘Grow Teach Feed’ model of OSP works to create better food and food education to children, mainly due to building economically sustainable farm-to-school models. His involvement with the Organic School Project and strong background in the food service sector led him to launch Beyond Green: Sustainable Food Partners (formerly Greg Christian Consulting), a sustainability consulting firm, which provides organizations in the food service industry and with in-house dining services with sustainable solutions, implementation strategies, and the expertise to adopt sustainable operations. He is the author of Scratch: Dreaming a New Dream for School Food as well as the 9-Minute Nutrition Ninja, and has been featured nationally in several media outlets including The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Huffington Post, Inc.com, WGN Radio, Chef and Biz Bash. Christian also serves as a regular source and contributor to media articles and speaking engagements on the topic of sustainable efforts.
