Gather Around Nutrition offers farm-to-table catering services for multi-day retreats, private dinners, special events, and business lunches. We bring you the freshest seasonal and organic produce directly from local farms to provide you with a unique seasonal menu for events big or small! We source 100% from local farms for these events so your guest can experience the bounty of seasonal variety the Pacific North West has to offer. As nutritionists, we are able to accommodate any and all dietary restrictions so none of your guests will go hungry. We are located in Portland, Oregon, and are able to travel to locations within Oregon and Washington state. We have experience and equipment for catering off-grid, so whatever your venue of choice is, we can always make it work!
LUNCHES & CASUAL EVENTS
We offer healthy farm-to-table catering for casual events in Portland, OR. This can look like grab-and-go boxed lunches for offices and team meetings or buffet-style services for a backyard garden party. Our lunches are always gluten and dairy-free and filled with seasonal vegetables. These meals typically include your choice of an organic animal or plant-based protein, a whole-grain salad featuring local vegetables and fresh herbs, and fresh local greens dressed with a house-made vinaigrette, and our house-pickled vegetables.
We also build beautiful seasonal grazing boards that we offer as a stand-alone option or in addition to our lunches. Our grazing boards are a stunning and colorful display of local vegetables, fruits, cheeses, cured meats, house-made vegan dips, and pickled vegetables. Think of them as edible art installations!
With our focus on healthy, vegetable-forward menus, our services are perfect for yoga retreats and healing gatherings. Our meals highlight the local bounty that the land has to offer, as we source our produce and meats as locally as possible for each event.
Our menus are always gluten-free and dairy-free so everyone can enjoy meals together! We have operated in a wide range of kitchens, and we always go the extra mile to provide meals that are both nourishing and beautiful, with special touches like infused herbal waters and edible flower garnishes. We've grown accustomed to hearing that our meals were the highlight of the retreat!
WEDDINGS & PRIVATE DINNERS
Our catering services for weddings and private dinners offer a beautiful multi-course meal consisting of an amuse bouche to get things started and delight the senses, followed by a starter course of a fresh seasonal salad or soup, a main course that includes high-end animal proteins (with vegan options always available) paired with two vegetable side dishes, and a seasonal dessert to finish off the night. Non-alcoholic beverages such as herbal spritzers and locally roasted coffee and tea selections can be provided upon request.
We partner with Division Wines to offer wine pairings if desired, at no extra service cost.

"Our caterers canceled on us 3 weeks prior to our wedding, and Johanna & Jed completely came to our rescue! They created a fantastic menu for our wedding and pulled off the catering for our event on super short notice. The presentation of the food was lovely, artistic, and professional and the dishes themselves were so unique and delicious while wholesome and healthy. Our wedding guests were so impressed and we can't recommend Gather Around Nutrition highly enough! Johanna & Jed were a pleasure to work with."
