This week marks the official end of summer. My kids are back in school, the fall gala season is underway and the calls have started for holiday celebrations.
You may have noticed the Ad Council’s commercial on TV talking about food waste. (View commercial here:http://savethefood.com
) This is a big issue for small family farms as well. In our continuing effort to support local agriculture we are pleased to be able to purchase excess fruits, vegetables, and meat from several local farms. This month’s specials incorporate 40 bushels of peaches we have purchased from Blades Orchard
, chicken purchased from Groff’s Content Farm
and greens purchased from Eco City Farms
I would also like to introduce you to our newest team member Hillary Miller. Hillary brings an extensive event planning background to Geppetto Catering and is able to assist with your full service events. She can develop custom menus, provide fresh ideas, and handle all of your event details. She looks forward to working with you on your next celebration.
As we welcome fall, our thoughts turn to football. I am sure you saw in the news that Cathy Lanier
has accepted a job with the NFL as the head of security.
Congratulations to Cathy Lanier on her new role and join me in thanking her on her commitment to our region’s safety. We are proud to partner with The DC Police Foundation on this year’s Metropolitan Police Department “Family Field Day
“. In past years the MPD officers were responsible for securing, preparing and serving the food. We felt that all officers should have the day off from cooking and decided to underwrite the catering. If you are interested in donating, please submit payment to the DC Police Foundation at this link: http://bit.ly/2ckLm4s
As always, thanks for your support!
