6 Los Angeles Caterers With Crave-Worthy Offerings During COVID-19

Eating delicious cuisine just got a whole lot easier. While parties and milestone events remain postponed, six of Los Angeles’s top caterers are offering their exclusive catering menus for pickup or delivery. 

As 24 Carrots Catering and Events shares on its website, “In a time like this, we find the best in us, and the best in each other . . . How we do it is a little different for now, but with the help of amazing clients and wonderful community, we’re still delivering what 24 Carrots is known for – phenomenal food and exceptional service.”

In addition to providing an online market place, Good Gracious! Events is meeting the times by providing over 5,000 meals per week to the Children’s Hospital of LA. As they say on their website, “Our culinary team has come together to make this happen curating delicious, healthy, and freshly prepared lunch and dinner for the hospital staff, doctors, and nurses.”  

Sourced Craft Cocktails is bringing the work-time happy hour back by hosting a streamed experience where employees can order the cocktails of their choice and have them delivered to their homes. Sourced Craft Cocktails shares, “This program benefits local bartenders by putting them to work delivering your cocktails across NYC, Austin, Dallas, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, and 5% of each order goes to the US Bartenders Guild relief fund to help support bartenders on a national scale.”

So whether you put on a cocktail dress for a virtual Zoom dinner party with friends — or don a pair of comfy pajamas for a gourmet-take on the traditional TV dinner — check out these six LA catering companies. It’s not every day that you get to eat like you’re at a Black-Tie event.
