Thank you so much for being a part of our day! All of the guests raved about how amazing the food was, and we agree!”

The meal that keeps on giving
Eat for Equity’s mission is to build a culture of generosity through sustainable community feasts.
To further this work, we invite our clients to direct a portion of their bill to a nonprofit of their choice. Some caterers charge an additional fixed percentage of gratuity to pay staff. Instead, our model is to charge an additional 10% as a donation to be directed to a mutually agreed-on nonprofit organization [it doesn’t need to be Eat for Equity]. So far, clients have collectively given $5,000 to local and international nonprofit causes.
Catering is only available within a two-hour drive of the Twin Cities in Minnesota. That said, we have catered events on an island in the middle of Lake Minnetonka, in the midst of a music festival, on many a farm, and in traditional event spaces.
The estimates above include all staff costs for buffet or passed service, including set-up and clean-up. Please contact us for an estimate for individually plated or family-style service.
We act as a rental liaison, booking and coordinating rental orders with other companies, from china to linens. We pick up, clean, and return rentals, and charge an additional 15% of the rental cost for this service.
We are also happy to share our collection of vintage and thrift plates and silverware at no cost. We provide compostable plates, cups, and silverware, at no additional cost.
We are happy to provide additional referrals or information on request. Please reach out with any questions.
