Great Performances is honored to receive an award in sustainability by City & State. The CSR Award in Sustainability recognize outstanding corporate citizens for their work in sustainability across all industries. 

Over the past ten years, Great Performances has worked to build stronger farm to city connections both internally and with the client community it serves. Below are a few of the sustainable practices we've initiated: 

  • First caterer in the nation to own an organic farm
  • Katchkie Farm CSA, which serves over 500 members in New York City via workplace and community sites 

  • Founded the Sylvia Center, a 501(c)(3) youth education program addressing the epidemic of childhood obesity through hands-on culinary classes in the kitchen and on the farm, teaching over 2,000 children annually. 
  • Composting, recycling, and repurposing over 100 tons of food scraps annually 

  • Our ‘Tradition’ line of hors d’oeuvres and desserts that are made of  repurposed leftover and uncommonly used ingredients
  • Over the past three years, more than 480,000 pounds of food leftovers and farm surpluses have been delivered from GP events to food pantries throughout the city and upstate (GP is a proud supporter of New York Common Pantry, Bowery Mission, City Harvest and West Side Campaign Against Hunger). 
  • More than 2000 gallons of cooking oil transported annually from our kitchen to Katchkie Farm, where it is used to heat the farm’s greenhouses.
