It is the mission of the Bates College catering department to provide our customers with the finest service and the most innovative culinary creations. To achieve this goal we use local and/or organic fruits and vegetables when available, support the Maine economy by purchasing local seafood, and constantly pursue educational opportunities to keep abreast of the latest trends.
This web page was developed to aid you in planning your events. It is our goal to provide our customers with the necessary tools to make informed decisions about their catering needs. On the following pages you will find valuable information ranging from ordering procedures to specific menu options and decorating ideas. This guide merely gives a general overview of the services and food options that are available to our customers. If you have a specific need or dietary concern that is not covered in this guide, please contact the Catering Office for special arrangements.
The Catering Office is available on either a walk-in or scheduled basis to help with overall planning and to answer any questions that you might have concerning your event. We hope to fulfill all of your catering needs. All questions are cheerfully answered, no request is too small and no problem is too big.
At your service…
Bates College Catering Office
