Boxed Lunch

We offer two boxed lunch options to meet the needs of your busy event and discerning attendees. The Grab-n-Go Box Lunch comes with your choice of ham, turkey, or roast beef on white or wheat bread with potato chips, individual fresh fruit, and cookies. The Classic Box Lunch can be had with three sandwich options, a variety of sides, and dessert. A chef salad is also an option. Drinks can be added to both box lunch options. We’re happy to deliver them or arrange for pick up and we’ll gladly bulk package them instead of individual boxes if that’s your preference.

Pizza Party

A pizza party is a great way to add some variety to the meals for your event. We’ve partnered with a local pizza favorite, Valentino’s, to offer lunch and dinner pizza party packages at the same rate as the equivalent dining hall meal. The lunch pizza party comes with assorted single-topping pizzas, one side, beverages, plates, utensils, and napkins. The dinner pizza party upgrades the package to two sides. Options for sides include garden greens salad with dressing, garlic spirazzi breadtwists, and cinnamon dessert spirazzi breadtwists. Valentino’s is able to accommodate many special diets and will deliver to your preferred location on campus or off.

Catering Policies

Any full-service catered event located in venues other than the Nebraska East Union is considered an off-premise catered event. There is an additional charge for these events. Please inquire for more information.

Our catering staff can deliver food directly to your facility at any time. These events, which do not require full-service, will be charged a flat delivery fee. The delivery fee on East Campus is $10, the delivery fee on City Campus is $10, and the off-campus delivery fee is $20.

All food service events will have an additional 15% gratuity applied. Please note that Nebraska law stipulates that all service charges are taxable.

Nebraska city and state sales tax is applied to all food service events at the current rate of 7.25%. In addition, a 2% occupation tax will be added to the total including sales tax. Please notify us if your organization is tax exempt.

While the University of Nebraska–Lincoln is a dry campus, a process has been established by which alcohol can be provided. Please contact us to learn more about the current alcohol service policy and requirements.
