At Chef’s Expressions, we pride ourselves in supporting and maintaining a healthy environment. We realize that the smallest steps can make a BIG difference in today’s world. One important effort that we’ve made is supporting our local farmers. This helps us to create sustainable menus for our clients. By going “green”, we hope to transcend our commitment to our community, and work towards making Chef’s Expressions a better environment. With that said, we are very proud to announce that Chef’s Expressions is a Certified Green Caterer!

“For me, it is important that we use local, sustainable ingredients, which is why we support our local farms. Being a company located in the northeast, it is a little difficult, because we need to focus on our seasonal ingredients as opposed to the ingredients that are shipped from all over the globe.”Jerry Edwards CPCE, President and Corporate Chef
