The Hillside Kitchen Catering Services

Welcome to the Hillside Kitchen, where catering is just a bit different than anywhere else. When you select the Hillside Kitchen for your food service, catering, party planning or other food needs, you’re choosing more than just the food itself. Every catering order helps the children and families served by Hillside. With every bite your guests take, families are being empowered to live happier, healthier, more stable lives. Now that’s a pretty powerful plate.

Recipe for Success

For more than 180 years, Hillside has been committed to providing health, education, and human services programs that are desperately needed in our community. Every week, the Hillside Kitchen continues that tradition by catering dozens of events and providing meals for hundreds of youth served by Hillside and other programs throughout Central and Western New York. We also provide youth with paid experience through our apprenticeship program—you might see one of our apprentices at work, helping make your event a special one.

How to Order

Please note: Advance notice of three business days is required for all catering orders.
