Go Green: JPM to Participate in Main Line Chamber of Commerce Sustainability Conference at Agnes Irwin School on May 13
Since Jennifer McCafferty started JPM Catering out of her home kitchen in 2009, sustainability has been at the forefront of the company’s operations. JPM’s seasonal approach, composting kitchen scraps, sourcing food locally and naturally, using compostable disposable serviceware and designing menus and decor that minimize waste has helped change how Greater Philadelphia thinks about food and events. As JPM has grown, it has emerged as a green leader in an industry known for waste and excess. That’s why the Main Line Chamber of Commerce approached JPM to join an esteemed panel of speakers for its Sustainability: Eating, Exercise & Environment conference at Agnes Irwin School on Tuesday, May 13 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The site of the conference will be held at Agnes Irwin’s new 85,000 square foot addition, which is slated for LEED Silver certification. We’ll join registered dietician/nutritionist Janelle Lacey of CulinArt for a sustainable nutrition discussion. There will also be a sustainable exercise discussion led by Michael Kane, the Physical Education & Wellness Department chair at Agnes Irwin, and Dwayne Wimmer of Vertex Fitness in Bryn Mawr. Attendees can also participate in a tour of the building’s sustainable features and a networking session. Admission is free for Chamber members and the public. RSVP here.
