Origins and Purpose
Founded in 1984, The Upper Crust Catering has catered thousands of weddings, corporate events, and parties throughout the Pacific Northwest. We are driven by our passion for people and our passion for food in everything we do. This extends not only to the guests we serve on a daily basis but also to the overlooked and marginalized in society.
Service through Urban Hands
For over a decade, Upper Crust has served high quality meals to roughly 1,000 hungry individuals a week through our nonprofit arm Urban Hands and our partnerships with local nonprofits including Tent City 3, the Organization for Prostitution Survivors (OPS), Street Youth Ministries, Julia’s Place, Community Dinners, and DADS (Divine Alternatives for Dads Services). We believe everyone is entitled to a warm nutritious meal, and we’ll do what it takes to make that happen. Any leftovers are returned to Upper Crust and shared with the community on next day as well.
Second Chance Job Opportunities
In addition to our meal program, The Upper Crust has committed itself to providing real sustainable jobs to those who need a helping hand. A portion of our laborforce comes from our partnerships with local nonprofits. We are committed to providing liveable wages, teaching culinary skills, and believe everyone is entitled to a second chance to pursue their dreams.
