Join the #Blenditarian Movement
Are you looking for ways to do better for your students? If so, join the blenditarian movement! What’s a blenditarian? Anyone who wants to “do better” – starting by blending mushrooms with meat.
One who believes that the mighty mushroom has meaty powers to make meals more delicious, nutritious and sustainable!
The Blend has become a force to be reckoned with, making its way into 20% of schools* across the United States.
Major manufacturers and management companies such as JTM, Sodexo, Maid-Rite (The Rite Blend), and Tyson have embraced the benefits of The Blend — it can reduce fat and sodium, while boosting flavor and allows for larger portion sizes — and have developed prepared burgers, meatballs and crumbles to get onboard with the blenditarian movement and have taken the pledge.
Schools across the country have embraced their inner Blenditarian by developing and serving blended recipes to rave reviews by students, and we’re excited to feature those recipes on MushroomsInSchools! Try out the “USDA Trinity” blended taco from Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District <will link to recipe> and explore many more from our recipes page! <link to recipe page and blended category of recipes>.
Join fellow schools in the movement to “do better” for your health, planet and palate by taking the blenditarian pledge.
