Make your Next Co-op Catered Event a Zero Waste Affair

Bonnie Shuman, Weavers Way Executive Chef

Greetings! Well, it’s hard to believe that summer is coming to a close. Time flies like an eagle, fruit flies like bananas! Tacky jokes aside, we are now in the ramp-up in the kitchens at Weavers Way for our busiest time of year for catering.

There are probably still some out there who don’t know that Weavers Way does catering. Well, we do, and I have to say, we provide excellent food at very reasonable prices. In fact, you might call our catering, Weavers Way Catering, the best-kept secret in Philly.

In keeping with the Co-op’s focus on minimizing our use of plastics and other disposable packaging, we can offer a zero waste platform (think no plastic) for your next Weavers Way catered event. Rather than providing your catered food packaged in foil and plastic, we can prepare your order on our beautiful wooden or porcelain serving platters.* This not only reduces the plastic footprint, it also really makes the food stand out.

So, for your next event, let us do the work for you. We guarantee your guests will love the taste and be wowed by the beautiful presentation, all while taking a small step to reduce plastic consumption.

*Member only benefit. Non-members can utilize this service with a $100 deposit, refundable when platters are returned to Weavers Way.
