A last-minute menu change has switched out fish for mushrooms.
The 77th annual Golden Globes is set to take place this coming Sunday, January 5, but guests may be in for a surprise. The dinner, held before the award ceremony, will feature a vegan menu, which the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) says is an attempt to “raise environmental awareness about food consumption and waste.”
The change was made only two weeks before the event and surprised the Beverly Hilton hotel, which is hosting.
The Golden Globes event, which just a year ago partnered with Fiji Water, has also switched to Icelandic Glacial water served in glass bottles in a move away from plastic. (Maybe California tap water could be the next step ;-))
HFPA president Lorenzo Soria believes the vegan meal will get people thinking, and no doubt it will. “We don’t think we’ll change the world with one meal, but we decided to take small steps to bring awareness. The food we eat, the way it is processed and grown and disposed of, all of that contributes to the climate crisis.”
