Catering Options

The District has contracted with California Dining Services (CDS) for food services. CDS has the first right of refusal for all catering for groups larger than 10 people that occur during food service operating hours. Please visit the Food Services website for information, hours and to download the catering request form. If CDS is unable to fulfil the catering request, you may use an outside food vendor, such as an external caterer or food truck. Prior to using an outside food vendor, contact Purchasing ( for instruction on the steps to follow before making these arrangements. For external groups (outside of the college) using Palomar facilities, the use of CDS for catering services is encouraged, but is not required.
