On-site Catering

Bastyr University Catering Services provides catering for all onsite meetings, conference, and retreats. Prepared by our chefs from scratch, delicious meals are made from the highest quality ingredients —  and organic whenever possible.

Bastyr takes pride in its sustainable practices such as our comprehensive composting of corn-resin "plastics," paper and food wastes. Bastyr University has practiced sustainability for over 20 years as part of our mission. 

Bastyr University Catering Services offers a wide variety of cuisine and diets including delicious vegetarian and vegan options. Special dietary accommodations such as lactose-free or wheat-free options are available with prior notice, however, we are not a certified/designated gluten (or any) free facility and cannot guarantee the complete absence of specific ingredients. All of our food is made in a gluten-friendly kitchen, prepared and cooked using shared equipment and is not recommended for those with celiac disease or gluten allergies. And of course, we offer delicious organic cuisine everyday in our own Dining Commons on campus for students and the public.
