Sustainable Catering Impact

Thanks for growing our impact! 

Ordering from Portland Pedal Power takes cars off the road, saves gasoline, and promotes a thriving local economy. With your help, we nearly doubled our environmental impact from 12.5 tons of CO2 saved in 2016 to 28.61 tons in 2018.

You also helped us reduce food waste. Upon request, we donate leftovers from catering to our friends at Portland Rescue Mission. In 2018 this added up to a total of 2,924 pounds of food, the equivalent of 2,437 meals which went directly to those most in need.  

We plan to expand our impact even more in 2019, with numerous sustainability initiatives including piloting a waste-free catering project in partnership with Lloyd EcoDistrict, GoBox, Portland Rescue Mission, an app called “Move Food” and funding from eBay.  Stay tuned for more info!
