Convention Catering Help Wanted

Convention catering can range in difficulty from a convention that only requires water service to a full blown hand served dinner. One event that seems to pull out all the stops is DoTerra. With over 2000 guests, it can be quite the task to pull off. There are so many guests, in fact, that Utah Food Services is required to reach out beyond our usual temporary agencies and ask our friends and families personally. In years past, the support that we have received has been really great. We have had all sorts of groups volunteer to raise money for their organizations, ranging from school groups to church groups, and everything in between. We would love to see you there helping out!

For groups who are interested in raising money for their organization, please contact
