We Love Food
Most of all, we love food that is good for you: simple, tasty and appetizing foods prepared from scratch with fresh, sustainably sourced and better-for-you ingredients, providing balanced nourishment for your body and soul.
Transparency matters. We pride ourselves on providing our chefs with ingredients that not only taste great, but are as clean as possible. We put a lot of time and effort into sourcing and procuring the products we use in our kitchens. And, rest assured, we never sacrifice quality for cost. To ensure exceptional offerings at Immaculate Heart Academy, we regularly visit our vendors and manufacturers.
Nutrition and sustainability go hand in hand. Cater to You’s dedication to sustainability goes beyond making responsible food decisions. We care about our planet and respect the resources it provides. We enjoy partnering with our schools to initiate or support environmental stewardship programming such as farmer’s markets and composting in an effort to effect positive, lasting change.
