Catering & Dining Payment Guide

Procurement to Payment Services is proud to share our new Catering & Dining Payment Guide. Designed to work hand in hand with our Catering Policy, Hospitality Guidelines, and Master Catering List, this new guide helps departments with catering payment methods, planning considerations, and anything food or catering process related.

As a reminder, Spartan Eats/Chartwells is our primary catering supplier and recommended to fulfill campus catering needs.  

Spartan Eats offers delicious, fresh foods, creative menus, and friendly, professional service.  They cater for a wide range of events with options such as box lunches, simple snacks, or just coffee.  In addition, they can provide full meals with main courses.

If after following the Spartan Eats catering request process they are unable to meet your catering needs, look to the list of pre-approved caterers on the Master Catering List

The new Catering & Dining Payment Guide is available on the Finance and Business Services’ website.

If you have any questions, should Spartan Eats be unable to accommodate your request or if you wish to use a different caterer, please contact catering@sjsu.edu, or our Contracts & Procurement Services Buyer, Emely Balingit at emely.balingit@sjsu.edu or 408-924-1767.
