Daily Inspiration: Meet Smart Hands Catering

Today we’d like to introduce you to Smart Hands Catering.

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
In October 2020, a new concept was born—eco-friendly, safe packaging. We developed a business plan to include everything dear to us. It consists of strict protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19, sustainable cups that wouldn’t negatively impact the environment, and purchase mostly local ingredients to support our community. Now our vision was complete.

Smart Hands Catering is about taking care of the environment. We believe that small changes make significant differences in preserving the planet. All our boxes, utensils, serving cups, and packaging is made from recyclable materials.

Sustainable event catering services in Los Angeles are choices for the future.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Food that travels hundreds of miles or more isn’t fresh. Our healthy foods are based on the promise of high-quality fresh ingredients. Quality is a bit more complicated. Local farmers’ market foods offer minimal processing, less mileage, and more value to the community than making long-distance purchases.

Research shows farmer’s market items use minimal or no pesticides, antibiotics, and genetic modifications. Our goal is to provide customers with nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables that taste like they were picked yesterday (and some may have been!).

Buying local allows us to reduce the global food footprint and give our community a fighting chance against large multinational companies. Food in the U.S. travels an average of 1,500 miles to get to your plate. At Smart Hands Catering, our goal is for farm-to-table and dock-to-table freshness that supports the local economy.

Additionally, by sticking to our regional suppliers, we’re reducing the use of fossil fuels and other natural resources. Transporting fruits, vegetables, meats, and fish back and forth across the country harms our environment more than it helps. Together with the sustainable packaging, Smart Hands Catering is giving back to the Earth and helping her live longer, healthier, and happier, much like our promise to our families and clients.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
​We’re the first catering company to offer delicious, naturally developed meals and appetizers in eco-friendly boxes. These smart containers won’t leak, look great! Place the used cups and box in the recycling bin when you’re finished. ​

We’ve created this system for safety and to reduce our catering company’s environmental footprint. The fewer hands involved in the preparation and delivery reduces the infection rate and gets us one step closer to a return to normal. We’re determined to be part of the solution going forward.

Our company is specialized in serving private events, weddings, bridal showers, holiday dinners, kids parties, baby showers, business meetings, corporate events, home parties and more.
