Join us as we Fight Food Waste Today on April 28, 2021

Food waste is central to some of the key challenges we face in the world today, including hunger and poverty, climate change, health and wellbeing and the sustainability of agriculture and oceans. Stop Food Waste Day is a day of action and awareness to focus attention on the global epidemic of food waste and the solutions to combat the problem.

Wondering how you can waste less food? By making small changes to how we plan, shop, prepare, and store food, we can cut our food waste and save money at the same time. Check out these simple tips to waste less:

  • Eat all shapes and sizes. Tons of food is wasted every year just because of the way it looks—such as weird shapes, odd colors, or blemishes on a peel. If you can, buy your produce at a farmer’s market, as farmers are more likely to offer their whole range of items. A few larger-scale companies such as “Imperfect Produce” and “Hungry Harvest” sell ugly produce at a discount and deliver it right to your front door!
  • Plan ahead. Planning of meals is one of the most effective ways you can reduce food waste. Check your fridge and pantry before heading to the stores, then make a grocery list of only the items you need. Knowing what food you have and need stops you from over-buying and makes it easier to use up food before it goes bad.
  • Befriend your freezer. Leftover meals, breads, produce, sauces, and more can all be frozen and used at a later date. Rather than throwing them away, store them in the freezer and heat them up for a delicious meal!
  • Get creative. 90% of people throw away food too soon; create new recipes using the ingredients in the fridge and pantry. It’s like a game—what can I create with these ingredients? This can help keep meals different and exciting and deter us from getting rid of food too soon!

We pledge to make every day Stop Food Waste Day. Join us as we fight food waste today on April 28, 2021.

What our clients are saying

“I’m the GM for Branson [Ultrasonics] and based in the Brookfield office.  This is the first week that the café has been up and running in our new headquarters and just want to acknowledge the great job Adam Schnittert and the CulinArt staff onsite have done.  Our employees’ feedback thus far has been very positive.  The expanded options and menu quality have been very well received.  Just want to send you a quick note of thanks.”

“I wanted to recognize the individuals at the Valley Forge Site Café who have been supporting us throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic.  I have been onsite at least a few days every week since June 2020 and I noticed that the team continued to provide quality and timely service for breakfast and lunch.  They effectively packaged the food to maintain CDC guidelines. Thank you!  ”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“Dear Chef Anthony: Hi! It’s the kids from Room 223 [and their teacher, Mrs. Smith]. We thank you for providing us with such great snacks and lunches! We know how hard you and your staff work. We have been talking as a class and we came up with some of our favorite snacks. We really love the brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and Scooby snacks. The soft pretzel bits are really good, too. Thank you again! ”

“I have really appreciated the wonderful cafeteria staff we have via Culinart and the thoughtful meals they provide our kids. They're truly one in a million. I have also really appreciated the dedication Parker and CulinArt share to sustainability and green practices on campus. I am so thankful that Parker has chosen CulinArt, a company that shares Parker values, and that they took the time and effort at such a hard time to make sure that Parker is always on the forefront of green practices and safety - never compromising.”

“We were totally impressed by the presentation and care in which these new team members were brought into the CulinArt family. So happy we made the decision to choose CulinArt Group.”

“The roasted tofu/noodle/edamame arugula salad with cabbage, carrots and red peppers was something that I would buy from a restaurant or food truck without question. It would win best school lunch in the U.S. without a doubt if there was such a competition! The textures and flavors were a perfect blend, tied together by an excellent dressing. I don't think anyone would be mad if that popped up on the menu every week. Thanks again to you and your staff for such high-quality food!”

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“With all the prep work from Winterim ramping up and classes continuing as usual, it's a busy time to be a Forman teacher. Imagine my delight, tired as I was, when I delved into the upscale-restaurant-quality chicken parmesan our dining hall served last night. Forman is all about support, and providing our students with a dinner of that quality is just as important a measure of support as anything that happens in a classroom.”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”
