Is your packaging eco friendly?
Our hot held packaging is re-usable and recyclable, while ensuring a consistent temperature profile with optimal presentation.  We have tried every eco friendly and sugarcane product on the market for our hot held dishes and unfortunately all sugarcane and eco friendly products fail to maintain their integrity and fail to keep hot food at proper temperature.  If anyone reading this FAQ has new eco or sugarcane product valid for hot holding, please let us know.  In the meantime, we will continue to use traditional MICROWAVE SAFE two part containers.


Is your packaging microwave, oven and freezer friendly?
Microwave: Only our hot held two part packaging is microwave safe as noted on the packaging.
Freezer: Our hot held two part packaging is freezer safe.
Oven: None of our packaging is oven safe.

 Consumer Advisory: Consuming raw or undercooked meats, poultry, seafood, shellfish or eggs may increase your risk of food borne illness, especially if you have certain medical conditions.

 What does Dish Republic do with any unsold food?

Dish Republic is actively involved in Community Outreach programs, giving back to the community that supports us.  Here are specifics on the charities we are actively involved with:

community-wnoc.jpgTHE WASTE NOT OC COALITION:  a public/private partnership striving to meet the nutritional needs of our community by facilitating the donation and distribution of wholesome surplus food.

Dish Republic supplies excess food to Waste Not OC, because we share the Coalition’s vision that to capture food that is otherwise wasted and direct it to people in need, could end hunger in Orange County.

WNOC is a public-private partnership formed with the goal of eliminating hunger and reducing food waste by facilitating the donation of wholesome surplus food from food producing facilities to local pantries. The coalition is reaching out, educating, and partnering with food producing facilities to donate their excess food instead of throwing the food away. WNOC thrives on minimal funding and generous in-kind contributions. WNOC partners with Food Finders, a 501c3 nonprofit organization that does the work of transporting excess wholesome food from food producing facilities (hospitals, restaurants, and other businesses) to pantries that serve communities in need. The overall vision of the coalition is to end hunger in Orange County using a three pronged approach: educating the community about food donations, identifying food insecure individuals, and connecting those individuals to sources of food.   For more information, please visit Wastenotoc.org.
