A Greener Event

Field to Table has implemented a broad based environmental operating plan that touches every aspect of our food service and aligns with The Field Museum’s sustainable plan that is used in the museum's restaurants.  From sourcing the majority of our ingredients within the five states bordering Illinois, to ensuring our disposable wares are compostable, to utilizing environmentally safe cleaning products post-event, Field to Table has worked within The Field Museum's sustainable programs guidelines. This ensures that each event’s “environmental footprint” is kept to a minimum. Ask your consultant about ways that you can assist in our efforts.
