Catering Menu and Request Form

CATERING: Due to the current pandemic we will not be able to provide catering until further notice.

Our catering department can provide food for district-related functions. We are also able to offer our services to out-of-district groups when such functions are held in a district building and arranged through Facility Use/Rental.

One-week's notice is appreciated for small catering orders. Large catering functions require more than two-weeks notice to allow for adequate planning and coordination. When an order is placed for a catered event, please provide a "ballpark" number of people to expect. A guaranteed number of meals must be provided by noon three days prior to the function. Orders placed, or charges made after this deadline may be subject to an additional charge. Cancellation of an event 24 hours or less prior to service may be billed in full or at a percentage thereof.

When placing your order, please provide the name, address and telephone number of the person to be billed. After the event, Food Service will bill for the catering services. You may transfer district funds to the Catering Account. You may also pay with cash or check made out to Royal Oak Schools- Catering Sales, and send to 1500 Lexington Blvd., Royal Oak, MI 48073.

All catering prices are subject to change.
