Global restaurateur HMSHost has expanded its Eat Well. Travel Further. range, extending the menu and launching the range at additional airports.
HMSHost’s new menu items, including vegan and plant-based offerings, will launch later this year at more than 20 airports across the USA.
“HMSHost has the honor of serving diverse travelers, all with different eating preferences and needs. Eat Well. Travel Further. was the first-of-its-kind lifestyle dining platform in airports, and we’re continuing to transform the airport culinary scene to deliver more choices than ever before,” said HMSHost president and CEO Steve Johnson. “Whether you choose to eat healthily as a New Year’s resolution or for the long haul, we have you covered during your travels.”
HMSHost Foundation grant recipient Black Girls Cook will curate one of the four new Eat Well. Travel Further. menu items. Black Girls Cook is a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching inner-city adolescent girls of color the true meaning of farm-to-table by operating hands-on cooking classes and growing edible gardens.
The dish will be selected during a cooking competition among Black Girls Cook contestants. HMSHost and HMSHost Foundation will hold the competition in February, with the winning dish scheduled to land on airport menus later in the year.
This year travelers will also see new dedicated Eat Well. Travel Further. kiosk locations in airports across the USA. These will provide travelers with easily accessible healthy to-go options.
All Eat Well. Travel Further. products have 500 calories or fewer per serving ; are free from artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners; and are free from hydrogenated fats or high fructose corn syrup.
