Full Service Catering
Aramark offers a Full Service Catering program for special occasions, when food and service can add a special touch to your event. Catering services are available on the USM campus as well as the greater Portland area. Our professional catering staff is available to service your event, from an intimate dinner to an elaborate social or business occasion. 

To place an order contact our catering office between 8 am - 4:30 pm Monday through Friday at 780-4204 or 780-5612. Or order online: 

Whenever possible all catering orders should be placed five (5) business days prior to your event. While we make every effort to accommodate last minute orders, we can not guarantee your first choice selections can be fulfilled.

We recommend when planning events for larger groups that you contact our catering office at least four (4) weeks in advance. Our team of catering professionals are on hand to create customized menus to meet the individual needs for your group as well as suggest an array of appropriate accompaniments.

Minimums are clearly listed for all menu items throughout this guide. Any event not meeting the stated menu minimum will be charged an additional 10% of the total food and beverage amount.

Additionally, any event hosted by a client other than USM will be charged an additional 10% of the total food and beverage amount. Complimentary delivery service is provided for all orders meeting our $100 food and beverage minimum. Orders not meeting this minimum will be charged a $20 delivery fee or can be picked up at he Woodbury Campus Center or Brooks Student Center.

Local Donations
For the safety and well-being of our clients and guests, food and beverages are not permitted to leave the premises of a catered event. In the rare case there is remaining food, all efforts are made by the catering department to donate the food to a local reputable charity.
