The MemphisEATS pilot project produces healthy, plant-forward meals for students, faculty, staff and community to pre-order and purchase. College of Health Sciences students develop recipes, calculate nutrition information and assist with production to augment their education with a full-circle and robust food experience.
Two menu items are offered each week throughout the eight-week pilot. With a high focus on flavor and biodiversity, the meals are a cost-effective way for you to try vegetables at the center of the plate.
Meals feature five or more vegetables or fruits, lean proteins, healthy fats and whole grains. Each week features a vegetarian and meat option. Meals are one serving per container, fully cooked, perfectly portioned, ready to heat and eat!
