As the host of the catering event, you are responsible for the equipment we have provided for the service of your catered event. Any missing or damaged catering equipment or supplies will be charged to your account at replacement cost. In the occurrence of a very large event, specialty equipment may need to be rented. We can provide this for you at an additional charge.
Services and prices are posted for normal business days in accordance with the University academic calendar. Events scheduled on University holidays or weekends will incur an additional labor charge.
Due to food safety liability, guests may not remove food from the function site.
Changes and Cancellations
All cancellations and/or changes referring to the menu, count, and event arrangements must be confirmed three business days prior to the event. Any event that is not cancelled within this time frame may result in a 50% event charge. If you do not contact us with a final count within three business days prior to the event, we will prepare for the estimated number and charge accordingly.
All University catered events must have a secured payment before they occur. Valid forms of payment are: credit card or department account number. All other groups must be paid three days prior to the event by money order or credit card.
There is no delivery fee for catering meals at CSUSB. There will be a delivery charge to any catering event not located on campus.
Sodexo is dedicated to addressing the concern for wild fish populations and the health of our global waters by ensuring that our seafood is caught or raised sustainably. We know that this will help us ensure the long-term viability of our seafood supply and meet the needs of clients who are increasingly concerned about the sustainability of our planet. Based on this policy, there will be times during the year that some seafood will not be available.
