A full service, alternative event catering company, Harvest & Revel offers well-sourced and creatively cooked food with style as well as ethics.. As part of their commitment to sustainability and the ethical local food industry, Harvest & Revel uses all natural, organic, antibiotic- and hormone-free ingredients, sourced from their own local farm and partners in the Tri-State Area. They are also committed to reducing waste, and employ creative techniques to use leftover ingredients, partner with Rescuing Leftover Cuisine to donate all food leftovers, and compost any food scraps that cannot be donated. Harvest & Revel also spearheaded a "Harvest Justice" project to raise awareness and money for the Northeast Brooklyn Housing Development Corporation's Growing Youth Power program, which prepares teenagers to live healthful lives and to take action for food system change by training and employing them in what is often their first work experience. When you hire Harvest & Revel for an event, you can choose to donate a lump sum or a percentage of your bill to the "Harvest Justice" project. In addition to catering, Harvest & Revel offers beverage and bar packages, staffing, styling and design, floral design, rental coordination, and even venue lighting, DJ, and photographer coordination.

Committed to taking the sustainable path in a largely environmentally-unfriendly industry, Purslane is proud to be New York's first trash-free and carbon neutral caterer. A full-service events and catering company, they implement a wide range of eco-friendly practices, and aim to send nothing to landfill, relying instead on recycling, composting, upcycling, and reuse programs to process their waste. Purslane's facilities are powered by 100% renewable energy, and they offset the carbon footprint of each meal they serve and every event they create by investing in carbon sequestration initiatives. Purslane's cuisine is ingredient-driven and follows a slow-food ethos. They use sustainable, organic, pesticide- and antibiotic-free ingredients and products from nearby farms, and source their beverages from local breweries and wineries. In addition to their sustainability initiatives, Purslane is committed to supporting their local community. They partner with Rescuing Leftover Cuisine to bring food leftovers to local shelters and care centers, and support a local homeless shelter and an education-based production farm that offers hands-on farm training and leadership opportunities for youth and adults. Purslane offers customized menus for a wide range of events, beverage packages, and drop-off catering services. They also operate two boutique venues: Fitzcarraldo and Franklin + Kent.

Bringing the magic of farm-to-table dining to any venue, events catered by The Pixie and The Scout are marked by their focus on food. They prepare the freshest, most sustainably harvested ingredients, sourced through their many farming and fishing friends, to provide creative meals crafted for each client. The Pixie and The Scout are committed to the highest level of environmental and agricultural sustainability in the way they source, cook and serve food. Passionate advocates of the food revolution, they are dedicated to making access to nourishing food a right not a privilege; to challenging consumer assumptions about food and how it gets to our plate; to disrupting the narrative of who belongs in the fields/the markets/the kitchens that make our plates possible; and to bringing people together at big tables. They are committed to all the ways that food—specifically their own—can make communities more honest, more loving, and more just. In addition to event catering services, The Pixie and The Scout offers delivery, always with biodegradable servingware; supper clubs at their studio where ticket sales go towards supporting individuals and organizations in their community working for economic and social justice, particularly in the arenas of food sovereignty and sustainability; and workshops.
