At Sifted, we take pride in our dedication to sustainability and making a positive impact on the environment. One of the top ways we are doing this is through becoming a zero food waste company. This means that none of the food we serve gets thrown away. By locally sourcing produce, composting in our kitchens, and donating uneaten food to people who need it through our partnership with Copia, we are able to eliminate food waste and benefit the environment!
The Springtime has us carrying iced lavender lattes in our hands, out in parks with perfect weather and high pollen counts, and of course, passionately re-organizing our kitchen cabinets. We’re cleaning out our desks, reducing our closet size, and finally un-clogging our drains, but what about our fridges? Yes, actual cleaning of the appliance is always a good idea (here are some tips from the cleaning Queen herself, Martha Stewart). But what about the food itself? Starting off the year with healthy eating can be one of the most helpful spring cleaning activities to do for yourself. Eating clean can give you increased energy, enhanced mood, and the ultimate gain, a longer life. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by starting in your own kitchen and with your own groceries. Although it may seem daunting, cleaning up your diet doesn’t have to be difficult, and you may even have fun in the process.
Our Commitment At Sifted, observing our environmental impact is rooted in everything we do. We work to minimize food waste at every turn, to eat eat mindfully, and to appreciate all those involved in growing and preparing our food. We believe every day is earth day, and we’re happy to share our journey with each of you. - Jess + Kimberly // Sifted Co-Founders
At Sifted, we pride ourselves on being a company committed to protecting the health and wellness of the environment and communities we serve. We are the first catering company to launch a national, portfolio wide food donation program that feeds thousands of people in need through our partnership with Copia. With Copia’s help, we are able to safely and easily deliver 100% of our uneaten food to nearby nonprofits who need it. Not only does this meet the needs of underserved communities, but this also benefits the environment by eliminating food waste!
Meet our Denver Head Chef, Kevin! When you meet Kevin Barthelemy you will quickly find out that he is extremely passionate about life… and food. I had the opportunity to chat with Kevin and talk to him about his experience as a chef. What was evident, even over the phone, was that Kevin has an exuberant attitude towards life and has a desire to put his all into everything he does - including being Sifted’s Denver head chef!
It’s 2019! This year we are making daily changes to live more environmentally friendly. Since we do spend a significant portion of our time at the office, it's important that we bring our “green” efforts into the workplace too.
