Fiscal Services is responsible for maintaining the Fiscal Services Approved Catering Suppliers list and will ensure that all MCCCD certificate of insurance and purchasing requirements are adhered to. Divisions can use any of the below restaurants/caterers (*Chartwells is EMCC Preferred Caterer) to provide food for their event without any additional approvals (insurance).
EMCC is defining “catering” as any noncommercial packaged food or drinks prepared by either a restaurant or caterer (excluding pizza, coffee, donuts and bagels). Catering must be purchased from one of the approved suppliers below. Catering cannot be purchased on Petty Cash. See Official Functions page for non catering purchases.
Chartwells is EMCC's partner for providing food service to the college including prepared food for meetings, events and gatherings. Divisions are required to work with Chartwells, first, to provide food service for their meetings, events, or gatherings. If Chartwells is not available (email required from Chartwells) then the division can use one of the restaurant/caterer from the Fiscal Services Approved Catering Suppliers. If the division wants to use a restaurant/caterer that is not on the list below, prior written approval is required from Fiscal Services.
