Home / Blog  / How To Reduce Food Waste At Your Next Event

AUDIT YOUR FOOD USAGE AND WASTE…In order to start reducing your food waste you need to know what your group has used and what is wasted.

TALK TO CATERING CONTACTS/EXECUTIVE CHEF…This is a Team effort so working with your catering department and/or Executive Chef at your venue is vital!  Ask them how they manage their wasted food for other groups or events.

DITCH THE BUFFETS… Buffets are the biggest food waste based on the amount of food needed but if buffets are necessary, use smaller plates to help reduce waste.

STAY IN YOUR LANE… Consult with your chefs and see where you can bulk order with other group orders and/or make sure to order off of predesigned menus as custom menus produce more waste.

KNOW YOUR NUMBERS… your guarantee numbers are another vital part of reducing food waste so know your attendee numbers and know your no-show rate.

AM I LIABLE IF PEOPLE GET SICK FROM MY DONATED FOOD?…The Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Act was passed to protect food donors from liability except in cases of gross negligence.

WHAT ORGANIZATIONS CAN ASSIST?…, are two you start with.

    I have figured out some points through your website post. One other subject I would like to say is that there are numerous games that you can buy which are designed in particular for preschool age little ones. They include pattern acceptance, colors, pets, and patterns. These usually focus on familiarization instead of memorization. This keeps children occupied without having a sensation like they are studying. Thanks Salaidh Freemon Clough

    After all, we should remember compellingly reintermediate mission-critical potentialities whereas cross functional scenarios. Phosfluorescently re-engineer distributed processes without standardized supply chains. Quickly initiate efficient initiatives without wireless web services.

    The road seemed to stretch on endlessly before us, but Alexis assured me that our journey was near an end. We’d turn before long into thick woods and travel through narrow, winding roads until we reached her family’s cabin. I had no choice but to trust her as GPS had given out nearly 20 minutes ago.

    “There’s good wifi and okay reception at the cabin,” she’d told me, “but you can’t get there unless you know the way.”

    So here I was, driving alone in the middle of god knows where with a girl who was my student just a couple of weeks ago. Her and her four best friends had been together from first grade all the way through high school and now they had graduated with very different futures ahead of them. They had decided to kick off “the best summer ever” with a week long stay at Alexis’s family cabin. Alexis and I were heading up before everyone else, the four other girls and four guys.
