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!

Wondering how you can make a difference? Head to to stay connected and take the pledge! Share your pledge on social media and encourage others to take the pledge with you!

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

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

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“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.”

“I can’t thank your entire team enough for the outstanding service, food, displays, everything!  You are a master at detail, and because of that Adam and I were able to focus on the parents.  I know what a sacrifice pulling off a weekend like this means, we are so appreciative and grateful to you all for your talent and generosity.”

“I ALWAYS feel spoiled by the meal offerings at CSW (The Cambridge School of Weston) and am entirely grateful for it. As I eat today's delicious and lavish lunch (and think about yesterday's as well), I can't tell you how much I feel so well cared for here, both with the food and by the dining hall staff. CSW cares for us in so many ways, both big and small.”

“Thank You! Chef Budd [and team], you overcame a new online ordering system (and hundreds of labels daily!), provided creative and healthy menus, continued to connect with local farmers to incorporate locally sourced ingredients, and worked tirelessly to serve the school community on three campuses.  While it feels like you are all a little like the Wizard of Oz right now, working behind a curtain in a kitchen far away, we sense your smiles and your passion to deliver the best possible service during these trying times. We are all so grateful!”

“I will say that CulinArt has always been a very collaborative partner to T. Rowe Price, listening to our current needs and future goals and suggesting realistic and achievable strategies to meet those goals.  2020 was obviously no exception.  CulinArt also altered other areas of our OCS and pantry programs to create safer environments for all our associates. We can only thank you for your continued flexibility and innovative ideas through these difficult times.”
