I ordered too much food for my event, what do I do now?

We have all been there, right? We host an event and order way too much food because it would be highly embarrassing to not have enough and send people home hungry. Now you are stuck with 20 pounds of stuffed chicken and you don’t know what to do with it. Well we have the answer for you!

  • Get some to-go boxes to send people home with leftovers. Everyone loves a good leftover meal.
  • Pack up the food to give to homeless people. Giving back to the community is truly rewarding.
  • Donate the food to the venue employees, DJ, and other vendors who assisted in the event. It is a nice show of appreciation for their hard work.

To avoid this situation from happening again, check out Event Planning Blueprint with Melanie Woodward for the six questions to ask yourself before getting started. She has great advice on how to plan ahead.
