Anniversary Celebration!

Congratulations to the Epicurean Feast Staff for a great first year!
April marked the One Year Anniversary at Don’s Place, the café at CTDI in PA. We celebrated the event with CTDI by offering a sampling of favorites from each station capped off with Carved Tenderloin at the Entrée Station. Our team at CTDI, Peter Pray, Chef Manager; Angela Jamison, Cashier; and Edith Miller, Grill/Deli Cook did a great job in preparing and presenting the “Taste of Don’s Place Favorites”.

Gerald Parsons, Chairman and CEO of CTDI and Leo Parsons, President and COO addressed the associates before “cutting” the celebration cake. Don’s Place is a gathering place for CTDI associates and we are pleased to provide our services in this upscale café. Paul Rennie and Steve Miller were also on hand for the event. Based on the turnout and feedback received – it was a big success!

Veggie Van Runs on Biofuel

As part of its multi-faceted response to global warming and to protect our environment, Epicurean Feast client EMD Serono has retrofitted a van to run on biodiesel fuel. This van, dubbed the Veggie Van and painted a vibrant green, travels the streets to promote biodiesel fuel and other renewable energies.

The Veggie Van actually runs on vegetable oil.  The oil is collected from the café and is then converted into fuel. This fuel produces only about 20 percent of the pollutants of a normal diesel engine.
The Veggie Van provides educational outreach to children and people of all ages. Visitors step inside a mobile classroom where they can watch DVDs on global warming and pollution and find out about what alternative fuels can do for them, the environment and their pocketbooks. Epicurean Feast is working on a new initiative to have all of our used frying oil uitlized to create low polluting fuels.
