College Park, MD (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
If wind power is the future of sustainable energy, La Prima Catering is already ahead of the curve. The College Park, MD-based company's kitchens in College Park and Columbia, Md. are now 100% wind powered.
Celebrating 25 years of growth and success this year, La Prima President Dave Evans says the company will devote the next quarter century to environmental and community responsibility -- in addition to innovative, high quality food and service and extraordinary special events.
“Wind power is just one of several sustainability efforts we’ve embraced,” Evans explained. “In addition to using eco-friendly, recyclable materials, La Prima composts more than 1,000 pounds of food waste each week. We grow organic vegetables and herbs in our garden outside corporate headquarters and we partner with local farmers to provide other sustainable produce and grass-fed meats.”
La Prima's commitment to sustainable practices makes the company an ideal choice for environmentally conscious event planners and clientele. Through the company’s new Seeds to Celebrations initiative, La Prima caters grown-to-order, farm-to-table weddings, corporate galas and other special occasions.

“We look forward to the next 25 years of bringing our customers the highest quality food at great prices, always prepared and served in keeping with our commitment to environmental sustainability,” adds Evans. “It’s what our customers want, and it’s our pleasure and privilege to meet this growing demand.”
