Tufts Catering is committed to meeting the needs of guests who have special dietary restrictions or preferences. With at least 24 hours advance notice, our chefs can accommodate most requests. Please contact us at 617-627-3411 when booking your event to let us know how we can meet your needs. Then, be sure to inform your guest to identify themselves at the time of the event so our staff can ensure they receive their special menu items.
We recognize that you and your guests may need to know about potential allergens in our menu items. Please notify us if you or anyone in your party has an allergy or food intolerance, and contact us at 617-627-3411 with any allergy-related questions or concerns.
Please note: If entrées are modified to accommodate special diets, the original entrée price will be charged if it is higher than the price of the substitution.
We offer a broad variety of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free entrees and sides, to meet the needs of our diverse community. They are identified on the menu by the following notations:
In most instances, with 48 hours advance notice, our chef can accommodate vegetarian and vegan guests with an appetizing and healthful alternative to the main entrée. Please consult with our Catering event coordinators when booking your event.
We will provide kosher foods upon request using our Glatt kosher deli or an independent kosher caterer, who delivers prepared foods to our distribution facility. Any vendor minimums and delivery charges for kosher foods will be passed on to the client. All standard Tufts Catering charges and fees also apply. We can provide kosher menu examples by request.
If your event is planned in the Hillel Center or requires kosher foods, please contact our office to review the available kosher selections. While we are able to provide kosher foods in other campus locations, kosher service will be less strict outside the Hillel Center.
All catering requests for Spring Recess (March 17 – March 24) require at least 6 business days' advance notice. The deadline for requesting catering service is Friday, March 8th by noon. More notice is preferred!
