At any event that Zeffert and Gold caters, we are sure to bring more than enough food for guests so there is no fear of running low. So what happens to all of the leftovers? Zeffert and Gold does whatever we can to minimize waste and maximize the benefits of leftover food.
For any type of event-weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, or whatever it may be, we always provide the host with a generous amount of all of the food from their event. We gladly wrap up appetizers, main dishes, side items, etc. so that they are ready to transport right to the host’s fridge or freezer. You would not believe the gratitude in doing a gesture like this, and we often have our clients tell us how thankful they were to have a bite to eat after the event. It’s hard to sit down and enjoy a full course meal when it’s your own party, so hosts will get to eat afterwards or have it at their leisure.
Not only do we have host food after the event, but we also take back any remaining leftovers and donate delicious food weekly to an organization called Helping Up Missions. Helping Up Missions is a great organization that provides various services to those who may be experiencing poverty, homelessness, substance abuse or any other hindrance. We feel it is our obligation to provide to those less fortunate, and what better way to serve our community than with delicious food.
Lastly, we feel that it is important to dispose any food or material waste properly, so we recycle and compost anything that is necessary to do so. We have compost buckets which we put food scraps and coffee grounds to be properly disposed, and various recycling bins throughout the office, kitchens and warehouse.
We commit our best efforts in maintaining sustainable green practices throughout the entire business. We are proud of serving our community, keeping a healthy environment and maintaining a positive relationship with our clients.
