Food Rescue

Help those in need through food rescue programs and/or reduction of food waste wherever possible.

Internal Culture: 

We offer food waste collection in our breakroom areas.

We throw pizza and donut parties (among other items) for staff’s hard work and achievements.

We teach our staff how to manage their food waste at home, helping them save money.


External Partnerships: 

We FLOSS as much as we can: Fair Trade, Local, Organic, Seasonal, Smart. This cuts waste in our supply chain. Centerplate works with clients to nail their menu guarantees. This saves clients money and benefits our planet (no ordering 1.5x the food needed in SLC).

Event food is kept at safe temperatures and served as needed so we can donate to our local community. We’ve donated over 100,000 meals since 2017, read about our key rescue partner Wasteless Solutions, here.

Wasatch Resource Recovery digests any food that can’t be donated. This incredible anaerobic digester turns meats, dairies, oils, and organics into natural gas and bio-fertilizer.

Food waste collection is offered throughout the Salt Palace front-of-house, allowing attendees to divert banana peels, chicken wing bones, etc.


New Targets: 

We want to continue examining ways we can manage food scraps. Onsite aerobic digestion or scraps going to pig farms are a few ways to build more sustainable and circular outcomes (such as reducing hauling of food waste). We look to tell more visual stories of food rescue in action and capture data around local/seasonal sourcing through our sustainability reporting.

Achieve over 90% landfill diversion by 2030 (reducing waste increases food rescue).
