We understand it’s crucial to contribute and remain committed to the welfare of society and the environment. By promoting volunteering, educational resources, green initiatives, programs and charitable giving, we can make changes in our communities that have a lasting positive impact.
To support a vibrant local economy and reduce our carbon footprint, we rely on eco-friendly products, limiting food waste, composting, recycling and implementing our eco-container program.
It’s our duty to keep the environment safe and continue practicing green initiatives throughout our businesses. We comply with environmental legislation, waste and recycling practices and recognize conservation, biodiversity and pollution issues.
We actively seek to establish new partnerships across the U.S. with local farms and growers within each market. By partnering with Gordon Food Service and their Nearbuy program, we can enhance our ability to provide local procurement. Our existing relationships allow us to offer an extensive list of local partners in order to achieve our Farm to Table goals.
