St. Charles Community College Food Services provides fresh meals at the Plaza Bistro and the Café/Bookstore, and catering services for on campus meetings and events.
St. Charles Community College Food Services strives to provide high-quality services at reasonable prices. Since many catered functions can be complex in nature, it is important that you consult with the catering staff as early as possible. The more complex the event, the more time required to plan. Please book your event a minimum of 10 working days prior to make certain that facilities, product, and labor are available. This will ensure that you have a successful, stress-free event.
While catering services are available most of the calendar year, there may be times when your request cannot be honored. If we cannot service your needs, we will make every attempt to provide a satisfactory alternative service (catering pick-up, box lunches, etc.), or we will help you make other arrangements.
We deliver to most places on campus. However, due to location and strict safety and quality guidelines, we do restrict the service of hot, perishable foods in some locations. Please contact the catering department before your event to ensure that service is available in your desired location.
Campus room reservations must be made before contacting the catering department. All room reservations must be made through Linda Shipley in the Office of Academic Affairs. She can be reached at 636-922-8468 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
After making your room reservations, you must contact the catering department at 636-922-8391 or email@example.com
If special arrangements are needed for you event, you must inform Linda Shipley at the time you book your room. Please inform the catering department of your needs so we can verify all is perfect for your event. Also, all furniture must be returned to its original configuration before you leave. This is your responsibility, unless other arrangements have been made. This has a direct impact on the event following yours. An additional service charge may be assessed to cover added labor cost to return furniture.
A guaranteed attendance for all functions must be submitted no later than two working days prior to the event. This number will be considered a guarantee not subject to reduction. If the actual number exceeds the guarantee, you will be billed accordingly for the actual number. If a final guarantee is not received, the actual number served, or the original estimate, whichever is greater, will be used for billing purposes.
All cancellations must be made at least two working days prior to the function. Cancellations made less than two working days prior will be billed for any expenses incurred (Perishable products, rental equipment, etc.). In the event of a snow day or other campus closure, we will work with you to reschedule yourevent.
Since delays in meal service affect quality; it is our goal to serve you at the scheduled time. In addition, all pricing is based upon service time of two hours. Therefore, if your event starts or ends late, or requires extended service time, an additional service charge may be assessed to cover added labor costs.
Catered events may be billed to private parties or through departmental budget codes. For on-campus groups, you will receive a copy of your event orderprior to your function. Please make any updates or changes and obtain the authorizing signature from your department head. Also, fill in the budget accountnumber and return to the catering department, Student Center, Room 123.
For off-campus groups, submit payment by check made payable to SCC Food Service. Applicable sales tax will be charged unless we receive a copy of your State Sales Tax ID Form.
All catered events will include all necessary holding, serving, and set-up equipment. All equipment is the property of SCC Food Service and must be returned as soon as possible. We do not rent equipment. There is a $3.00 per person charge for china and linen outside of the student center.
The catering staff at St. Charles Community College makes every attempt to ensure your safety through proper food handling, strict temperature controls, and certification of each employee by the National Restaurant Association’s ServeSafe Program. However, due to Missouri state regulations and St. Charles County Health Codes, SCC Catering cannot allow "food and beverage not packaged or held at proper temperature for transport or under our direct control” to be taken from a catered event. This is to limit our liability for any food borne illness caused by customer mishandling.
Small groups and special occasions call for more personal service. Call us with your special needs and we will work with you on menu and service style to fit your needs. Choose from menu items listed, or call for recommendations and customized service.
Prices are based on menu selection, service needs, and number of people. Prices can vary by using china and silver, paper and plastic, or a combination of both.
These prices are good until May 2012.
