The Hillside Kitchen:
Catering for a Cause.
Welcome to the Kitchen, where catering is just a bit different than anywhere else. We call it Catering for a Cause. When you choose the Hillside Kitchen for your food service, catering, party planning or other food needs, you’re choosing more than just the food itself. Every catering order helps the children and families served by Hillside Family of Agencies. With every bite your guests take, families are being kept together and empowered to live happier, healthier, more stable lives. Now that’s a pretty powerful plate.
