Great food for great virtual events!

“Lunch is a big part of the Solar Winery Tour, and I did not think we’d be able to do it virtually and also keep it affordable. And you guys have great service to boot. Much appreciated.”
– Zach Snyder, Solar Oregon

Elephants Catering and Events provides delivery and pickup service for any virtual event or celebration. We’re experts at delivering gorgeous food that travels and reheats beautifully at home — from cocktail hour appetizers to individual entrees and desserts.

Few caterers can deliver meals to a large number of guests, at separate locations, while maintaining our high standards and commitment to from-scratch cooking with quality ingredients. We’ll help make your event a smashing success!

“I just wanted to say thank you for being so efficient and accommodating! The food was a hit (as usual) and everyone was pleased (not an easy feat).”
– Leah Bazzani w/ Bennett Hartman

We provide 10% discount off food and beverage for non-profits and B-Corporations.

How it works
Your guests can choose from anything on our latest menu. Or we can create a customized menu noting your specified selections. The food will be delivered cool to each individual address, to be reheated later. (Reheating instructions included!)

Whether you’re including a meal in your ticket count, suggesting that attendees order from us, or just looking for fundraiser options, we can help!

Non-Profit, Corporate, and Social FAQ

How are you ensuring the health and safety of guests and employees during these times?
  • We look forward to serving you and your guests in a safe and responsible manner. We are committed to the safety and health of our community members, staff, and patrons. Our team will continue to abide by all applicable state regulations and guidelines.

Learn more about what we’re doing to ensure the safety of our team, our customers, and our community.

Am I able to postpone the catering for my event? What does that process look like?
  • Yes, you are able to postpone planned full-service catering for your event. Elephants Catering allows you to move your 2020 catering date one time, to any date in 2021. If you are still unable to hold your event on the new 2021 date, due to COVID related reasons, then our Force Majeure clause would be enacted, and we would be able to refund the deposit minus $250.

Otherwise, if you wanted to cancel the event outside of the Force Majeure clause, the following deadlines would apply:

90 day notice – 50% refund of deposit

30 day notice – 25% refund of the deposit

What do catered events during Covid-19 look like?
  • No matter the phase or circumstance, our catering staff is available to deliver & drop off your menu items. These items are available to be delivered cold to re-heat or hot and ready-to-eat. As of now, buffet service and bulk beverages are not available due to state regulations. At Elephants Catering, we have re-worked our menu to offer pre-composed meals, individual appetizers, and cocktail kits.
    A 6′ distancing must be maintained at all times between those who are not in the same household/family unit. Venues are designating separate doors for entering & exiting the building and are doing hourly sanitation of bathrooms and other high-touch points.
  • Cultural, Civic, and Faith Based Events: During Phase 1, up to 50 people can gather for an event, as long as the venue can accommodate the guest count with current regulations in mind. Please note, all vendors and staff must be included in your total guest count. Elephants Catering may be available to staff your event; please contact us with event details.
  • Indoor Social Events: Guest counts for indoor events are limited to groups of ​10. Elephants Catering is available to deliver & drop-off your menu selections. Masks must be worn outside as well, if 6’ distancing cannot be met.
​How do your menus work?
  • Our Full-Service Catering Menu is designed for a more elegant setting in mind and contains pre-selected choices appropriate for virtually any occasion. Some items from the full-service catering menu may require on-site chef preparation.
  • Our Delivery Menu is for our drop-off and catering delivery services, as well as curbside or in-store pickup.
  • Please inquire with our staff of professional event planners to receive the current full-service or standard catering menu and note that any prices listed do not include staff, bar service, equipment, décor services or gratuity. These can vary greatly depending on the scope of your event.
