30 Oct Being a Community and Environmentally Conscious Business with P3 Utah

Being a community and environmentally conscious business is important to us here at Lux Catering and Events. We believe it is not enough to just carry on business to make a profit without informed and responsible action as to how we affect the local community and the environment. As such, we have made it some of the fundamental tenets of our business structure to carry out community and environmentally conscious behavior in our day to day business. One way we've enacted this is by become a close-working partner and member of P3 Utah. To get a better understanding of what it means to be a member of P3 Utah, check out their latest video featuring a few of our fellow members as well as our very own co-owner, Kelly Lake!

16 Oct World Food Day – Let’s End Hunger

October 16th marks World Food Day - a day to put into the social focus the need to band together to end hunger in our lifetime! Here are 5 key facts you should know about hunger:
  • One in nine people on Earth do not have enough food to lead an active, healthy life – around 795 million people.
  • Although Asia is the continent with the most hungry people – around two-thirds of the total, Sub-Saharan Africa is the region with the highest prevalence (percentage of the population) of hunger. One person in four in the African continent is undernourished, according to the World Food Programme.
  • Poor nutrition causes nearly half of all deaths (45%) in children under the age of five – which is around 3.1 million children every year.
  • If women farmers had the same access to resources as men, the number of hungry in the world could be reduced by up to 150 million, according to the WFP.
  • According to the Global Hunger Index, 52 countries are suffering from "serious" or "alarming" levels of hunger, of which the Central African Republic suffers the greatest level of hunger (which is defined by a number of factors, including child mortality).
Source: World Food Programme Sometimes, these statistics seem overwhelming; too big of a problem for any one person to solve. And you would be right; for one person, this global problem is too big. But luckily, and especially on days like today, we don't have to do it alone. As they say "Many hands make light work". By coming together to address world hunger, we can inch closer and closer to a solution. One way we at Lux Catering and Events try to add our hands to solving this problem is by donating our services and products to Volunteers of America, who provide food and nutrition services across the nation among many other services for those in need.
