Do you accommodate special dietary needs?
Our culinary team is trained to properly prepare specialized meals to ensure your guests’ safety while providing an attractive, nutritious meal. If you do not find a suitable meal in this menu, our executive chef will develop a menu to meet all your needs. Throughout our menu you will find a wide variety of vegetarian and vegan entrees, sides and snacks. Additionally, we have several items that either are gluten-free or can be prepared as such. While we do our best, we cannot guarantee that any menu item will be completely free of allergens due to shared cooking and preparation areas.
Does JCCC Catering/Dining Services use sustainable practices?
Yes. See our Sustainability statements. We also compost leftovers.
Do I need a minimum number of people for some meals/buffets?
Yes. Buffets are for parties of 20 or more. If your event has fewer than 20 people, we recommend a served meal.
Is there a minimum purchase requirement?
After 6 p.m. and on weekends, your catering order has to total $50 or more before delivery fees.
What other restrictions are there?
We don’t serve hot food in classrooms. Leftovers from events cannot be taken away by anyone except catering personnel. We do not have to-go boxes. Some spaces in the Regnier Center require extra charges. Other restrictions may apply. Don’t hesitate to ask.
What if not everyone shows up?
You are billed for the number of guests you guarantee or the number that show up to eat, whichever is higher.
What if I have to cancel? Are there other fees?
Cancellations are rare and handled on a case by case basis. All our fees are listed on pages 5 through 8 in the catering guide (PDF).
