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

“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!”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

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

“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!”

“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.”

“You know that I haven't been home (India) for a long time now.  I miss my mama, I miss the food, I miss the smells, I miss the people. Starting yesterday, I started to smell my mama's kitchen at Parker.  I KNEW something Indian was brewing; I could smell the garam masala!  Thank you for the delicious tofu curry.  It made my belly and soul happy.”

“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.”

“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…”
