LUNdCH wants to help make your special event memorable, perfect, and delicious.
A Truly Collaborative Process
You know and love good food, and you shop at your local farmers’ market. Why should you change that for a special event? LUNdCH is here to help. Located in historic Staunton, in Virginia’s beautiful and bountiful Shenandoah Valley, we utilize the wealth of farmers and artisan producers in the valley and the surrounding area to bring you the best and freshest ingredients and products. At LUNdCH, our approach is simple and honest; the best ingredients, simply prepared.
We are now only offering full service catering within a half hour drive of Staunton, VA.
Drop off catering is still available almost anywhere with applicable delivery fees.
Please take a moment to review our business overview and pricing structure.
Then, let’s start a conversation about your event.

Do you provide plates, linens and glasses?
We do not provide rental plates, linens and glasses, HOWEVER we will work directly with the rental company of your choice to ensure that every detail of your order is covered. We ask that you register payment directly with the rental company.
We do have ample serving platters & utensils, cake cutting set, antique drink coolers and more that are available for use at no charge for full service events.
Do you provide alcohol?
While we do have an ABC license, we have absolutely no issue with clients providing their own alcohol.
It is cheaper to the client. Most couples will assign a few friends or Cousin Eddy to handle the alcohol purchases. *If you’re providing your own alcohol, M.L. Food can under no circumstances purchase, transport or store your alcohol for you until day of and onsite. e.g. You get it there, we’ll take care of from there.
Can we do a tasting?
Sure! Tastings are only done at Mike Lund Food in Staunton, VA. Remember, we don’t have a bunch of stuff for you to pick and choose from, so don’t expect your tasting to be like the one you had at the country club. At a tasting, Chefs Mike & James will prepare you a nice meal reflective of their cooking style, based on seasonal availability. Afterwards, we will talk about what you liked or didn’t like, salt, spice and so forth. There is generally no charge for tastings for the couple only, any additional guests are $75 each.
What’s the planning and consultation fee?
The $500 planning and consulting fee covers the months and months of planning, menu development, tastings, site visits, phone calls and emails that go into an event before the actual day of.
We have a lot of guests with Special Dietary Restrictions (S.D.R.'s), eg. vegetarians, gluten free, allergies, etc.
No problem! We are happy to accommodate any and all dietary restrictions. We just need to know about them in advance.
