  • Classic Culinaire Catering, Event and Personal Chef Extra Food Marin

    When catering large events, we make sure the client has enough food for all guests. However, this means that there is often much left over. When there is more food than the client can keep, we donate our leftovers to Extra Food Marin. Extra Food ensures that members of our community who need food receive it. Please visit extrafood.org to learn more about their programs.
