More information about Menus of Change 2021 registration is coming soon! Menus of Change 2021 will be held from June 15 - 17 at our Hyde Park campus.


Recognizing the continued, strategic importance of the Menus of Change initiative to the future of our industry—including rebuilding from the devastation of this pandemic—we will be staging our 2020 Menus of Change Summit this summer in a six-week, serialized virtual format. Our eighth edition of this CIA leadership program will feature a few hours of high-impact, interactive online programming each Wednesday beginning on July 22 and running through August 26 from 10AM – 12:30 PM PDT / 1 – 3:30 PM EDT.

The Menus of Change Leadership Summit: Virtual Series isn’t just a standard webinar with pre-recorded content. In addition to inspiring culinary demos, expert presentations, and insightful panel discussions, we’ve built in a host of virtual networking and interactive engagement opportunities that will deepen your connections to colleagues in the industry and help you find solutions across your supply chain. We encourage you to register and join us each Wednesday for the live virtual summit series in order to take advantage of these real-time networking and engagement opportunities.

In collaboration with the summit sponsors, we are making this Menus of Change Leadership Summit: Virtual Series available tuition-free to foodservice operators* on a space available basis. For more information on who is eligible to register for the tuition-free summit, please see who should attend.

Due to limited capacity within the live virtual series, we ask that you register only for those sessions in which you will be able to actively participate and also ask that each organization sends a limited number of representatives to each week’s live sessions. If you would prefer to stream the content at your convenience, you can instead sign up below to receive an email when those videos become available (typically within 48 hours of each event). 

Register for the on-demand webcast here.

If any of the dates do not show up when you are registering, it means that we are sold out for that session, but we encourage you to sign up for the other weeks. Also, please contact us at to be put on a waitlist for any sold out session as spots frequently open up if attendee schedules change. If that doesn’t happen, we’ll notify you as soon as we post the recording of the session for on-demand viewing.

*Foodservice Operators are defined here as chefs or foodservice professionals working for an independent or chain restaurant, a college or university dining program, a contract foodservice company, a hotel, cruise line, casino, resort, other foodservice operation, or for a supermarket or food/beverage retailer. Those affiliated with suppliers/manufacturers, including marketing and consulting companies, are asked to consider supporting the program through sponsorship.
