Why You Should Hire a Catering Service for a Funeral


Planning a funeral after someone you love has died can be a great trial in anyone’s life. At Coburn's Catering, we understand this very well. We pride ourselves on making our customers’ lives easier when they are grieving. If you are hosting a luncheon after the memorial services, here are 3 benefits of working with a professional caterer.

Comfort Food

Certain types of foods are just comforting to people and when someone we love has died, we need comfort more than anything. A caterer can help you select food for your funeral that will help cheer grieving hearts and give a little lift to an otherwise somber day.

Social Event

Food has a way of bringing people together and creating a social atmosphere all around it. When you are at a funeral, one of the best ways to cope with grief is by talking to people. The person who has died would want to be remembered, and having friends and family gather around a good meal to reflect on someone they all loved in common can be a great way to accomplish this.

One Less Thing

Finally, working with a caterer to provide the menu, cooking, and cleanup of all the food is going to give you one less thing to worry about. When someone you love has died, you should give yourself the benefit of just being able to work through your emotions and your feelings without worrying about special diets, oven preheat times, and something burning in the kitchen.
