COVID-19 Catering Updates

Thank you for considering Berkeley Events & Conferences. Please note that at this time, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not scheduling any no new catering orders.

As we collectively respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, our top priorities are the wellbeing  of our guests and employees, sanitation, and quality service. UC Berkeley Events & Conferences will follow the guidelines set by campus and county public health officials. As a result of the latest mandate by City of Berkeley and campus, all events and gatherings are cancelled until further notice. No new catering orders may be scheduled at this time. All catering/catering to-go orders previously scheduled during this period are being postponed or cancelled; our catering team will follow up directly with our customers about logistics.

To assist your planning efforts, we have prepared the following Frequently Asked Questions.  Answers will be updated when new information becomes available.

Our team will continue to work with all of our customers to provide the latest information and to assess options as we move forward. The facts related to COVID-19 are changing rapidly, so please check this page for UC Berkeley campus updates.

Take Home Family Meals

No matter what’s changed on campus, our catering services can still make delicious meals a part of your day.

We now offer take-home meals to faculty and staff working on campus – a convenient weeknight option. Pick up delectable main dishes, sides and desserts, each serving 4-6 people. Or, pick out a 16” pizza with hand-stretched dough.

Each selection meets the level of excellence we are known for. These heat-and-serve, homestyle feasts take meal prep and stress off your plate. Non-contact pick-up is just one of the extra precautions we are taking with food preparation to serve you during this time.

Choose from a selection of family meals or our popular pizzas.

Meals will be available for pickup from 4–7 p.m. (11 a.m.–7 p.m. for pizzas) Monday through Friday at Clark Kerr Kitchen.


Place a catering order
through our event planning form.

Make it a Berkeley event with our culinary expertise and excellent service. Whether planning for a simple coffee break, meeting, or an elegantly served reception, we will cater to your taste. Our catering event coordinator will create a custom proposal to suit your budget requirements, event needs, and individual preferences. We will manage your event from the initial planning stage through final billing. All aspects of your event will be considered to ensure maximum success and guest satisfaction: a seasonal menu made from local ingredients, beverage selections, linens, china, and decor.

For a convenient To-Go food option with delivery available on campus, we partner with Ladle & Leaf to bring almost twenty years of experience providing healthy, sustainable, delicious food to you. Place your order online to have food dropped off at your meeting space.

If you would like to order a hot buffet style meal, reception catering, or catering with an alcohol bar setup, we’re happy to connect you with a sales coordinator to make it happen. Please fill out our “Plan your event” inquiry form and we will be in touch to work out the details and provide a cost estimate.

Summer conference guests at UC Berkeley enjoy meals served in our residential dining facilities as part of their package plan. We will arrange your dining facility to be near your meeting and sleeping accommodations when available.

Each of our residential dining locations has its own executive chef and registered dietician, who create seasonal menus based on guest input. In addition, vegetarian, vegan, and heart-smart selections are always offered.

A portion of every Peet’s coffee purchase you make through Berkeley Events and Conferences goes to support UC Berkeley student programs, such as scholarships and grants, sustainability programs, and other student life resources and services. Visit the Peet’s partner page to learn more.
