How we’re green
CULINARY CONCEPTS & ‘GREEN CATERING’:
- We believe in creating delicious meals that are created without harmful chemicals and additives.
- We’re proud to present seasonal menus with flavorful foods, made with the freshest ingredients possible. We don’t use canned products or ‘ready-made’ items.
- All of the seafood in our menus is sustainable.
- Our primary produce supplier, Moceri Produce, who’s been wholesaling produce in San Diego for over 100 years, does a great job of providing produce grown in local San Diego farms (Such as Connelly Gardens, Peterson Farms, Sage View Farm, Tierra Miguel Farms, Stehly Farms, and Beck Grove Farms) whenever possible.
- Organic Menus are always an option for our Clients!
- Whenever possible we opt for recyclable plastic, bamboo or corn-based products over Styrofoam, and do our best to accommodate clients needs.
- We are moving to more online content, fewer printed materials, and printing on recycled paper for both in-house and external materials.
- We recycle paper, plastics, glass and cardboard at our offices, kitchen and warehouse, and provide both trash cans and recycling cans on-site to encourage our guests to do the same.
- We donate to Blooms from the Heart (organization that recycles flowers from events and venues by delivering the re-purposed arrangements to San Diego area hospitals, senior homes, hospice centers and other facilities where they can be enjoyed) www.bloomsfromtheheart.org
- We recently retrofitted all of the lights in our facility to low energy bulbs.
- Our kitchen donates its used oil to convert into bio-diesel fuel.
- We are constantly continuing our “green” education, by attending seminars and conventions, reading, and getting involved with ‘green events’ (The Children Museum’s Plan It Green Vendor Showcase, field trips to visit nearby farms to learn about more what’s grown locally.)
- ‘Greening’ is not a fad or a trend and will effect the special entire events industry, and we fully support the cause….and besides, organic, local foods Taste Amazing!!!
