Feel Good Foods Catering
For us, every meal is an occasion for celebration. Since 1994, we have been successfully orchestrating parties, setting tables and delighting our guests with excellent service, beautiful presentation and the finest local organic food.
Heidi and Amy are longtime friends and business partners and are often mistaken for sisters. Both of them were born and raised in the central coast area and among its beauty and abundance. Inspired by their love for food, nature, travel, and all things beautiful, they enjoy spending their time making delicious food and gathering people together. Both have worked in food and restaurants all their working careers, and between them have tried on every hat in the trade. Either is comfortable and adept at working both front and back of the house, making for a flexible and competent team.
Heidi learned the art of cooking from her family. Her dad taught her how to pick a perfect peach, plant a garden, tend the orchard and do it all with patience and skill. Her mom instilled in her an appreciation of good food properly prepared and the joy in sharing it with others. Simple things done well, good clean and fair farming and entertaining with a sense of style and generosity are the ideas that inspire Heidi in all her kitchen endeavors. Her integrity and commitment to local, organic, seasonal sourcing is well appreciated by everyone hoping to create a better food future. Her food is simple, elegant, delicious and a beautiful reflection of the best that our growing region has to offer.
Amy handles the details and runs the show. Her focus is meeting with clients, handling the venue, rentals, service, helping in the kitchen, and adapting graciously to all the surprises that might come up during an event. Her years of experience and detailed planning ensure that every event runs smoothly and effortlessly for our clients. Time spent at the UCSC Farm and Garden program and interning at Chez Panisse have informed Amy's natural artistic sensibilities around food and service and created a style that is elegant and refined but never forced. Amy's ability to truly listen to her client's needs and desires makes realizing their dreams a reality. Her endless adaptability and flexibility makes working with her a pleasure.

Odds and Ends
Odds and ends
For all the other little odds and ends, we can either take care of them or refer you to someone who can, for example such things as homemade jam party favors, late night pizza trucks, or garbage/recycling removal.
Luckily for us, doing the right thing is also good for business, provides the tastiest food and creates the change we want to see in the world. Through our buying power, we put dollars into the hands of local organic farmers, grassfed and organic ranchers, and fisheries that strive for real long-term sustainability.
As a business, our mission is to take practical and realistic steps towards creating a sustainable business model while at the same time providing the very best quality product for our customers. In our industry, that means composting food scraps, reducing plastic usage, shopping local and organic, and providing living wage jobs. Our hope is to set the standard in both food quality and business practices.
