One of the critical initiatives of Terranea’s green team is addressing food waste. In an effort to contribute to the community and divert food from the landfill, Terranea Resort lessens food waste through its relationship with Chefs to End Hunger, the non-profit sector of food distributor LA & SF Specialty. When Terranea has a surplus of safely chilled, unserved food, it is diverted from the landfill through filled Hunger Kits that are picked up and distributed to either the Midnight Mission in Downtown LA or Bracken’s Kitchen in Orange County. Organizations like the Midnight Mission are able to keep the meals at such a low cost of production because of food donations like Terranea’s, as it costs 95 cents to serve each meal, per person, at the Midnight Mission.
