Funeral Catering

Funeral catering services help grieving family worry less while they mourn the loss of a loved one. Organizing a wake involves a lot of planning and for those who were closest to the dearly departed, the different tasks can be too much to handle. As friends and family gather to pay their last respects and offer their condolences it is customary to offer them food and refreshments.

Understandably, it can be hard to deal with the recent passing of a loved one and hiring the best funeral caterer can offer a lot of help. But before booking our catering services at Saint Germain Catering here are some important factors worth considering:

Food Budget

The tragedy of losing a loved one so suddenly can make planning a funeral very hard. There is no doubt that the cost of the funeral will add up which means it can be difficult to budget for food and drinks.

During this solemn time, guests will not expect to be fed a 5-course sit-down meal. Offering a few finger sandwiches, chips, and other finger foods can be more than enough for the occasion. The Saint Germain Catering kitchen team will be happy to prepare a filling spread for guests that will fit your budget.

Number Of Guests Attending

Guests attending a funeral are harder to predict than your typical occasion because RSVPs for a wake aren’t a thing. As the host of the wake, it is up to you to estimate the number of people attending the wake so that you can coordinate with the best funeral caterer about food quantity. A good rule of thumb is to add at least an extra 20 persons on your initial estimate to account for those you may have forgotten.

It is always better to have a few extra servings as leftovers than to run out of food when guests are still hungry. Don’t worry, if you need assistance our staff are ready to offer their help.

Saving Time And Money

During a funeral, food is the last thing on the grieving family’s mind. Since it is established that guests need to be fed, it only makes sense to hire a catering company instead of trying to prepare the food on your own. Even if it seems like arranging chips and dip in a platter seems like an easy task, there is no need to waste any time doing so when there are professionals who can do the work instead.

Although a catering service for a funeral seems excessive and expensive, there is value to their service. For example, our service staff at Saint Germain will handle the setup, serving the food, as well as the cleanup process. Opting for the full service will help you dedicate your time and effort on other, more important tasks.
