UCSC Approved Caterers

Departments must use contracted caterers that meet University business and insurance requirements. This policy is in place to ensure the safety and well-being of University employees and guests and to reduce risk to the University. When planning an on-campus event or function, please choose from the UCSC Approved Caterers' list below.

If you have worked with a caterer previously, but do not see them listed below, it is usually due to Certificate of Insurance or Health Permit having expired. In this case, submit a CruzBuy requisition and the Procurement buyer will take care of collecting the lapsed documentation while processing your requisition.

UCSC maintains a full list of Mobile Food Vendors who are approved for use on campus for special events.
  • To contract with a mobile food vendor (e.g. food trucks and pop-ups) for campus events , please contact
  • Note: Mobile food vendors are procured using a CTE card, not a CruzBuy purchase order (PO).

If you want to add a new caterer, follow the instructions at How to Buy: Catering.
