Eat Well Berkeley Catering

When food or drink is served at University-sponsored meetings or events, nutritious and sustainable choices should be included per the Food and Beverage Choices Policy. The Eat Well Berkeley Catering Program makes it easier to follow this rule by promoting caterers that offer plenty of nutritious options.
