Sustainable catering

On Safari Foods is a Seattle-based sustainable catering and corporate food service company.

 

We use seasonal, local produce whenever possible and are one of the only Seattle caterers with a 100% humanely raised protein program. 

A commitment to sustainable catering

"Sustainable food is the production of food using techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare. It's a way of food production that generates abundance while ensuring future generations can do the same," says Anna Lappe, author and sustainable food advocate.

At On Safari Foods, we understand that people want higher quality, better flavors, and the knowledge that what they are putting into their body was raised with care and without harmful pesticides or cruelty. As a Seattle caterer and food service provider, these issues have a direct effect not just on the food we make, but the way we operate as a company.

We conduct business based on key principles of sustainability.

Local food

Whenever possible, we buy only local ingredients that are currently in-season. Why?  Locally grown food creates important economic opportunities, provides health benefits and helps to reduce environmental impact.  By buying local, we are able to offer you food that is fresher while supporting our local farmers. The stronger our local farmers are, the more we ensure local goods can be grown and raised for generations to come.

Humane practices

We believe all food-producing animals should be raised in a healthy and humane manner so that everyone can have access to safe and humanely-produced food.  We are the only large-scale Seattle caterer with a sustainable, humanely raised protein program. The cherry on top? Premium, locally sourced ingredients lead to healthier, higher quality, and all around tastier food. 

Reducing waste

At On Safari foods, we strive never to waste food; therefore any surplus food is donated to missions in the Seattle area. We compost our food scraps and  offer compostable cutlery, napkins, plates, and to-go containers for clients. In addition to our standard recycling program for cardboard, plastics, and glass, we also recycle used cooking oil. We offer clients the option of reusable platters for sandwiches and salads instead of box lunches to reduce extra packaging waste.

PRODUCE


Charlie’s Produce
The largest local and organic program in the city. When they realized that the greatest impediment for a small farmer is getting their produce to market, they sent their trucks out to the farms North of Seattle and East of the mountains to gather these locally grown goods.
