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!

What our clients are saying

“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!”

“Thank you so very much for the AMAZING dinner you provided for the President, Dean and Jim & Marilyn Simons. They really enjoyed it!! It was perfectly thought out and delicious. Your expertise and impeccable presentation and taste were truly appreciated!”

“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 just wanted to touch base as another school year draws to end. I cannot thank you enough for how smoothly this year went. Chef Felix [Herrera] and his staff made it seamless in a year with lots of wrinkles.    ”

“I wanted to let you know that for this entire school year I have been so well fed! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE all the diversity of salad choices we have each day and the amazing entrees.  My favorites are the carnitas, chili, curry, and cajun chicken days.  I am so grateful for all the care that goes into the food because I know I do not eat enough vegetables or balanced meals without you and your crew's work.  Thank you so much!  You take such great care of us!!”

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

“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.”

“Just wanted to thank you and the team at Lake Success for taking care of us for my daughter's birthday. I figured the event was going to be straight forward, but it felt like the event was treated with just as much care and attention to detail as a wedding or other big event, which was very much appreciated. You anticipated everything that we needed and are so capable, bravo! The party was 10x more beautiful and lovely in reality compared to how I imagined it, thanks to you guys.”

“We want to take a moment to celebrate all the employees who worked on the front lines during unprecedented times. Your efforts and dedication to going above and beyond are noticed and appreciated. Thank you for being the heart and soul of CulinArt Group. We couldn’t do this without you. Chef Jay and Chef Paul have been so awesome in the Hubbell Café.  There has been significant change, but they take it in stride and keep the delicious food coming.  We truly appreciate them!”
