Occasionally event sponsors request cultural food items or special preparation methods that are not available through UEI Catering. The Event Services Office, working collaboratively with UEI, will try to address the sponsor’s catering needs in a fair and equitable manner.
Guidelines and Procedures
When this occurs, the event sponsor is asked to submit to the Event Services Coordinator, a written request listing all of the food items desired - along with a recipe for each item. The Event Services Coordinator will review this list with the UEI Catering Manager and Production Manager for approval and pricing. If UEI Catering is unable to provide all or most of the items requested, a letter from the Director of Dining Services will give written permission to the event sponsor to hire an outside catering company for that specific event only. The catering contractor must be licensed and insured, and must prepare all food off-site.
