As a food vendor, you are an important part of this initiative. All food vendors are required to comply with the “Food Vendor Green Initiative Agreement”. The festival has partnered with Sustainable Tallahassee to continue Greening the Festival which will require your help as a food vendor to reduce food waste and waste generated from food and beverage containers, especially in honor of Earth Day this year! The Greening the Festival initiative requires food vendors to comply with the following: 1.) Do not use any Styrofoam containers. If you need a provider for non-Styrofoam food and beverage options, we have negotiated a discounted rate from Dade Paper. See application for details. 2.) Do not use plastic bags when serving food. 3.) If you have prepared food that is unsold at the end of the day on Saturday or Sunday, please package it so it can be picked up by local non-profits serving the homeless in our community rather than throwing it away. 4.) Use the recycling bins and oil barrels located in the food vendor court for your use and convenience. There will also be composting options in the Behind The Scenes area. We hope you will join us at the festival and in our effort to incorporate environmental considerations to minimize the festival’s negative impact on the environment. 2022 GENERAL RELEASE OF CLAIMS & HOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT LEMOYNE ART FOUNDATION, INC.
