We’re Here to Support You

Planning funerals, Shivas, celebrations of life, and other affairs can often be overwhelming, especially when under a time constraint. Our team is prepared to jump in and support you, even at the last minute, and take charge of all the details so you don’t have to.

Dedicated Event Manager

A TOBEN Event Manager will work hand in hand with you throughout the planning process, providing recommendations surrounding service styles, menu options, rentals, and staffing to ensure your event is executed flawlessly.


A popular option for last-minute catering is our TOBEN At Home program. We offer next-day delivery of seasonal, locally sourced, and expertly crafted cuisine. Whether ordering for yourself or as a gift for a loved one, the process is simple and stress-free.



  • Can you accommodate all dietary needs?

    We offer a range of gluten free, dairy free, nut free, kosher, and halal options. Additionally, we are heavily focused on creating delicious plant based options for vegan and vegetarian guests. We request clients submit all allergies and dietary needs when providing the final guest count. Based on the final menu, we prepare dishes omitting allergens or providing an alternative that accommodates the special needs of your guests.

  • Do you offer Beverage Services?

    Yes, our team is happy to assist you with any beverage needs and can provide open bar packages, cash bars, a la carte, or beverage on consumption. We also offer soft beverage/garnish packages and coffee service. Custom menus/estimates will be prepared in the proposal process based on the variety offered, timeline for service and preferred selections. For consumption packages, a minimum of 1 drink per guest is required and additionally consumed beverages are billed post-event on the final invoice. Beverages may be provided under TOBEN’s Catering Endorsement Licence, and our team can also assist with applying for a Special Occasions Permit as required in public spaces or venues. Private residences do not require a liquor licence.

  • Do you offer kosher catering?

    We do not provide full kosher catering as we are not a kosher kitchen, however, we are experts in kosher style. Additionally, we can arrange for individual kosher meals for a select number of guests at your event. Your Event Manager would be happy to assist with this request.

  • What other services do you offer?

    As a full service catering company, we include food, beverage, staffing, and rentals required for service in our comprehensive proposals. In addition to these standard offerings, we can assist with other event requirements including: tenting (both for guest seating and for satellite kitchens), valet, power sourcing, furniture rentals, and more. If we’re unable to assist you directly, we have partnerships with many amazing vendors who hold the same quality and professionalism as our team. We would be happy to make meaningful connections across planners, florals, decor, AV, and entertainment to support your event.

  • Can I Send a Meal?

    Yes, you can send a meal or a gift card to your loved ones through TOBEN At Home. We offer next-day delivery weekly from Tuesday-Friday.
