Consider your table
“When you’re scheduling a wedding or hosting an event, think really well about how much you need,” says Jennifer McLean, chief operating officer at food rescue organization City Harvest, in a panel discussion. “Do you need to be overflowing with food? Or can you reduce and be a little bit more creative with what your table looks like?” If you hire a caterer, make a bargain that’ll help those less fortunate. “Say to the caterer, as part of my contract, I want extras donated to City Harvest or another place like us,” McLean advises.
