Food is such an important part of your wedding! After all, your guests will arrive hungry, and will certainly be anticipating indulging in your delicious cuisine. However, so much food goes uneaten, which ends up decomposing in landfills, creating methane and powerful greenhouse gases.

We believe that food should never go to waste! That’s why, here at Zeffert & Gold Catering, we have taken care of eliminating food waste, so you don’t have to. If you are all set to discover some great insight, be sure to continue reading:


Plan Accordingly

It is important to plan accordingly when creating your menu. Your guest count is extremely important. You want to have as accurate of a count as possible to avoid food waste. One of the best ways to eliminate food waste, is by working with a caterer that fully cooks on site! By cooking on site your caterer is able to cook based on the needs of the event, rather than drastically overcooking to prepare.

Give Back

Unfortunately, so many people in this world go without food each and every day. That’s why Zeffert & Gold finds it so important to give back to our community. We take care of donating any left over food after event to local charities. We primarily work with Meals on Wheels and Helping Up Mission. You can rest assured that when you work with Zeffert and Gold, you not only get an awesome caterer for a perfect event, but you also make a difference!


Scraps of food are alive and full of energy to harvest. Composting enriches soil, helps retain moisture, and suppresses plant diseases and pests. In addition, you can use natural ingredients in replacement of chemical fertilizers when it comes to gardening. At Zeffert & Gold, any food scraps that cant be donated get composted. We use that compost in our garden, where we grow fresh produce that is used in many of our dishes!

  • You have the opportunity to reduce methane emissions from landfills and lower your carbon footprint by compositing!

Eliminating food waste is certainly of importance! These are just a few ways in which you can when it comes to the leftover food and scraps from your wedding day.
