Two years ago, after hearing a presentation by the founders of Menus of Change—a collaborative of research universities that encourages healthier food choices that use less—Dennis Pierce, executive director of dining services at the University of Connecticut, decided to introduce a blended burger on UConn’s campus. In the end, UConn Dining didn’t just introduce it; they completely replaced 100-percent of beef burgers served on their meal plan.
