FFA Enrichment Center Catering


Catering Policies:

The FFA Enrichment Center allows “open catering” to all licensed caterers. A list of Preferred Caterers will be provided to renters. Our Preferred Caterers are familiar with the facility and our policies and provide excellent services, but renters are under no obligation to utilize the services of those Preferred Caterers.

Our Preferred Caterers are charged 10% of their client billing to cater at the FFA Enrichment Center. Licensed caterers that are not part of our Preferred Caterers list will be charged 18% of their client billing. This allows the Enrichment Center to offer multiple catering options to its clients. This cost covers the use of the kitchen and facility. Caterers may choose to simply charge an additional fee to their client to cover this cost.

Arrangements for all catering details are to be made directly between the renting party and the caterer. A list of Catering Policies and Procedures will be provided to all caterers utilizing the facility. Cancellations regarding catering and food service are to be handled directly with the caterer; individual caterers’ policies will apply.

For information regarding the alcohol policy at the FFA Enrichment Center, please contact the FFA Enrichment Center Events Coordinator by email at [email protected]  
or at (515) 965-7372.

Below are the 2018 Preferred Caterers at the FFA Enrichment Center. Each caterer has been selected by a special committee with the help of Enrichment Center clients.
