FIG Catering focuses on smaller events so that we can customize each menu, provide personal service from start to finish, source from small family farms, create food (even crackers!) in-house, and reduce waste. FIG is helpful, fun, and inventive in their approach and loves working with clients to develop special food and beverage menus.
Special Green Events are Our Specialty
FIG works with each client to create not only a special event, but a special greener event! FIG sources local, organic, and sustainable ingredients as much as possible and was a founding member of The Green Chicago Restaurant Coalition and is certified by Green Seal. FIG is active in the community by working with The Resurrection Project, Healthy Schools Campaign, Active Transportation Alliance, A Just Harvest, and sponsoring a Spark student mentorship – teaching kids and adults about good food and our environmental impact on the city.
We reduce our consumption and waste by insisting on recycling at all events, composting with Collective Resource, reducing water and electricity use, and being conscientious of packaging – both in what we’re bringing in and sending out.
FIG Catering meets Green Seal™ Standard GS-55 based on purchase of sustainably-sourced food, waste minimization, use of verified environmentally-preferable products, and conservation of energy and water. GreenSeal.org
