Food impacts the environment through its cultivation, transportation, distribution, consumption and disposal—which means the choices you make for your event meal functions can have outsized consequences locally, regionally and even globally. The choices your vendors make can have positive or negative effects on ecosystems, greenhouse gas emissions, water quality, waste and more. From ingredients and portion sizes to waste reduction and service ware, review the choices you make as part of the strategy, design and execution of event F&B functions through the lens of sustainability, all based on MPI's new whitepaper, "Sustainable F&B: Your Guide to Eco-Friendly Meals," developed with support from Virginia Beach.
