Family Care Meal Delivery & Celebrations of Life

To the Family,

The loss of a loved one is a difficult time. Not only have you had a loss in your life, but now you have to contact family and friends, prepare for burial, plan the funeral, and organize the dinner or luncheon. Essential Catering Solutions helps alleviate your stress with a variety of menu offerings in the "Celebrations of Life" Menus. Select from a number of delicious comfort foods such as savory rosemary chicken and garlic butter mashed potatoes, tender roast beef with tossed salad, or chicken & spinach casserole with artisan baked bread.

Our memorial catering staff is ready to work with you to customize your meal in any way you would like. With your help, we can build a commemorative menu including all of your loved one's favorites. 

Menus can be further customized to complement the type of event you are planning. Offer finger foods and appetizers for a light pre-funeral gathering or select buffet style or even plated service for a more formal sit-down dinner after the funeral. 

When planning your family meal, the ECS team will do anything we possibly can to make your planning as easy as possible. We are ready to offer suggestions for meal ideas including common requests and side dishes to complement your main menu choices.

Whatever you decide, we are here to make this as easy and stress less as possible.

Our prayers and condolences are with you and your family.

May God bring you peace and comfort.

As a Family Member or Friend...

Send A Meal: If you are the friend, or employer of a grieving family, or person who is ill, then why not have us deliver a sympathy or kindness meal on your behalf?

A Kind gesture of Care & Concern: Let us perform the kindest gesture for you. Whether it's breakfast before the funeral or meals delivered to the home, the physical nourishment is taken care of.

A Gathering Place: Most families want the opportunity to gather immediately after the funeral service to continue the sharing of memories. We assist you to find the alternative to local restaurant that may fall short of a more intimate setting.  A hotel, church, or private residence, may be the perfect place. Either way, we can help you find the best one for your need. Essential Catering Solutions has partnered with local funeral homes and venues to assist your family in arranging your memorial gathering. Our preferred reception providers offer discounted, specialized prices to help make this difficult time more manageable for our families. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us to learn more about what we do. 863-333-7100
