Almost every event involves food, but have you ever thought about what happens to the leftovers when the event ends? Where does everything go? If you're lucky, then all the food that you spent hours ordering for your event perfectly matched the number of attendees you had. Does this happen? Sure, but a lot of times there's extra food that goes to waste. The United States wastes about 40% of its food each year in fact. That's almost half of the food we produce! So ask yourself, what can you do to solve the problem? As an event planner, you can have an impact on that number. If you were to start donating the leftovers from events, then that number could go down. A great way to make an impact is to connect with local organizations near your events or establish a relationship with a foundation that you can donate to.
