SENFC presents Food Rescue Best Practices

at North Florida NACE Meeting

With so few LIVE meetings these days, we were thrilled when the North Florida Chapter of NACE asked if we could present at their September meeting on the subject of “Food Rescue Best Practices for Meeting and Event Planners”.  While the attendance was limited with 15 NACE members, and everyone was socially distant, Mary Fleming, President of Challenges, Inc. was able to educate the group on “Food Rescue, As Easy As 1-2-3.”  A few more catering and event managers are now engaged in sustainability and understand the implications of the US Good Samaritan Laws protecting donors from liability. Our thanks to Mary and North Florida NACE for the opportunity.  SENFC also debuted our new brochure, “Food Rescue Process – As Easy As 1-2-3” printed with the highest levels of sustainability by new corporate member, John Christiansen at “More Than Ink” in Jacksonville.  Our thanks to Vickie Corder, CMP, HelmsBriscoe for creation and Mariela Rodriguez, CEO at “Events2Empower” for her expertise in graphic design.

How to Host a Safe and Sustainable In-Person Event

by Elise Schoening

Once a top concern for event professionals, sustainability has since taken a backseat as planners grapple with how to safely return to face-to-face meetings in the era of Covid-19.
"When I take a moment to imagine what things might look like upon the return of events and convention center gatherings, I have total confidence that we will be able to do so safely," said 
Eric Wallinger, director of sustainability for Meet Green, in a recent webinar. "But I often wonder: Will we be able to do so sustainably?" More...
