Sustainable Catering at Your Service

You’re brainstorming your next event in the Philadelphia area and find yourself stumped when trying to determine catering arrangements. How can you find the perfect venue to satisfy a variety of tastes while also maintaining a sustainable mindset? We’ve compiled a list of four unique, but simple eateries in Pennsylvania that certainly fall under these event goals.

1. The Sunflower Truck Stop: An extension of Shorty’s Sunflower Cafe, this mobile food supplier will conveniently travel to you. Not awed by their already incredibly appetizing menu? You can make your own “exotic” requests for the cooks to experiment with – they’re all for it!

2. Lucky Old Souls Burger Truck: Featuring your favorite “farm-to-truck” menu with local ingredients to concoct anything from house-made bacon and burgers to seasonal vegetables.

3. Farm Truck Philly: By simply visiting their website, you’ll immediately be sold. With a seasonal menu created with the highest quality ingredients, you can only opt for a tasty meal from this mobile catering option.

4. Cosmic Foods: With a commitment to Fair Trade, purchasing locally, and sustainability, Cosmic Catering is more than ideal for your upcoming event. If you’re looking for something more than the option on wheels, this is the perfect choice for you.

Each of these will not fail to disappoint the expectations held by you or your group. With a dedication to supplying hearty foods from the freshest farms, there’s no need to sacrifice taste for sustainability – it’s all here!

An A&M Perspective

GMIC

Our very own Sales Manager Angela Obzud attended the GMIC Conference earlier this month. Here’s what she had to say:

On April 7-9, I had the pleasure of attending the Green Meeting Industry Council Annual Meeting at the McCormick Place in Chicago. Going into this meeting I did not know what to expect since it was my first time attending this conference. My expectations were not only met but exceeded by the enthusiasm and dedication to sustainability which was felt in the room.

One of my favorite parts of the meeting was the keynote speaker Eric Ryan with Method Products. Method Products sell cleaning supplies which are good for the environment.  To hear him speak of how he started by selling to people in store parking lots to now selling 70 million a year was amazing. Ryan’s presentation showed how the events industry can apply theories used by Method Products for planning and sustainability to “get the dirt out of events and meetings.”

Whether you are a meeting planner, supplier or just a green activist you will want to attend next year’s conference or join your local GMIC Chapter and help keep the environment green.

Worth while for next year? I’d say so. For more information on this past GMIC Conference, check out their about page here.
