Last year as a shared commitment to sustainability, the FFF in collaboration with a NY community organization, Friends of Inwood Hill Parks, took charge of the composting collection of all the discarded organic materials of approximately 3,450 lbs, as well as the recycling of non-biodegradable materials, such as plastic and cardboard.
The FFF donated 550 servings of individually packaged food to community coolers in Northern Manhattan with the help of the Whin food council, targeting the homeless.
FFF was also in charge of serving 350 extra portions for people present at the event, each portion with the nutritional value of the 12 oz plate, served in compostable disposables.
“With a shared commitment to sustainability, @friendsofinwoodhillpark is partnering with @flavorfusionfest to compost all food scraps, in addition to recycling all recyclables, and to provide meals to the surrounding community. 400 individually-packaged servings of Mangú will be donated to community fridges in Northern Manhattan with the help of @whinfoodcouncil and Coach Dave Crenshaw’s Uptown Team Dreamers.”
