When that food is healthy and delicious, it is even better. Handheld Catering specializes in customized food, beverage, and event services using sustainable practices. We are unlike any other caterer in the area because we are a complete farm to table style catering company, will take care of every aspect of your event or catering need, and are the only green business certified caterer in Santa Clara County.

What Is a Boxed Lunch?

A boxed lunch is very simply an individualized portion of our catered menu items which can be personalized and customized for every dietary restriction or preference including vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. They are perfect if you have a staff with a few picky eaters but still want to make sure everyone is covered. The lunches are pretty inexpensive (ours start as low as $12 per meal), and you can guarantee that you are getting top-quality, healthy meals for you and your staff.

Boxed lunches from Handheld Catering can be brought in for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and are available for delivery or pickup. We simply need 48 hours notice and require a minimum order of 15 boxed lunches at a time.
