SHOBI’S TABLE From-Scratch, Dollar-for-Dollar Catering
You can help fundraise for Shobi’s Table by hiring us for your catering needs. Every purchase of food pays not only for delicious, from-scratch catering for your event, but also pays for a meal for someone in need. It’s a dollar-for-dollar match! For example, if you purchase 20 wrap sandwiches, included in the price is 20 wrap sandwiches that we’ll give out at the pay-as-you-can café to folks who can’t pay.
MENUING: Ordering from Shobi’s Table isn’t quite like ordering from a regular restaurant, food truck or catering business. Our menu changes seasonally and week to week for the pay-as-you-can café, and we do our best to match our weekly café menus with any catering menus we have so to be good stewards of both ingredients and preparation time. When you initially order, we will together agree on a simple menu (such as Soup and Bread OR Wrap Sandwiches OR Baked Pasta and Salad). The week of the event, we will know what kinds of each general item will be made (such as Tomato Soup, Garlic Bread Sticks, Curried Chicken Wraps, OR Rustic Pepper and Zucchini Baked Pasta).
PRICING: Most menus come out to be about $10-15/person. You will be sent an initial invoice. If your event is public, we can put out our donation box, and any donations made will be subtracted from your final total. Minimum order total is $300.
FOOD TRUCK: If you would like the food truck to come out, we charge $150 for bringing it out to location within a 10 mile radius of our kitchen, and for 2 hour serving window. For locations past a 10 mile radius and up to a 20 mile radius, we charge $200.
CANCELLATIONS: We know that there are times that you need to cancel – such as weather (we wouldn’t want folks standing outside in line in a storm!) For last minute weather cancellations, we will charge 50% of the initial invoice. For all other cancellations, we ask that you let us know at least 3 days ahead of time. For any cancellation made less than 3 days ahead, we will charge 50% of the initial invoice.
Fill out our inquiry form to let us know about your event. We will email you back with our availability* and put together an initial invoice.
*Our catering services are available on a limited basis. Please inquire at least 3 weeks ahead of your event.
PREPARING FOR YOUR EVENT: If you are planning an event for which you are estimating the total amount of guests, it is best if you do some advertising in advance – such as creating a Facebook events, email invites, newspaper ads, and REALLY GOOD signage. Feel free to let folks know that we’ll be there!
