Billiken Dining Sustainability Commitment
With education as the primary focus of our business, Billiken Dining is committed to fostering and promoting sustainable business principles to our clients and customers. Our associates will lead by example through activities that minimize our impact on the environment by practicing the 3Rs, with a primary focus on reduction. Our programs will include the necessary information to encourage informed choices on both the food we conserve, and the ways we interact with the natural environment. Charitable donations, funding scholarship and bursaries, and active volunteerism by our associates are just some of the ways Billiken Dining re-invests in our community.
