CTK Catering Customer Testimonials

John Tayer

President of the Boulder Chamber of Commerce

Molly and I had the opportunity to enjoy a fabulous dining experience last night, thanks to the generous auction purchase of Steve Wallace, at the Bridge House Community Table Kitchen . . . It wasn't just that the meal was worthy of the finest Boulder restaurant - it is the story behind the meal that is so incredibly compelling. The amazing social enterprise model that Chef John Trejo has created (in partnership with the vision of Executive Director Isabel Ames McDevitt) takes homeless individuals off the street and, through nine-months of extensive training, work experience and career coaching, prepares them for a new profession and new lease on life. Learn more about the Bridge House Community Kitchen here - - and make plans to fill your stomach and your soul with a visit to this wonderful facility.

We had a great experience with CTK on Monday! Thanks so much, again. Delivery was on time, and everything was set up perfectly. James and Lauri (I hope I got their names right) did a fantastic job. The food was delicious! Everyone really enjoyed it. We really appreciate what you guys do - both the mission of the company, and the yummy food that comes out of it. 🙂 Thanks again - We'll be back!

Alan Halpern

Executive Director Congregation Har HaShem

Community Table catered a dinner in celebration of our Rabbi Emerita’s 25th anniversary in the clergy. Given her commitment to social action and our congregation’s long partnership with community organizations like Bridge House and BOHO, Community Table was the ideal partner because the choice enacted our values in addition to being a superb meal. The food was great. The menu accommodated our dietary restrictions and requirements. The price was fair. The staff were attentive. Everyone seemed to enjoy the dinner. Service went quickly. We couldn’t be happier.

Alan Culpepper

Conference of World Affairs

You all were wonderful to work once again. Thank you for being so accommodating and the food was outstanding! We have heard nothing but great feedback on the meals you catered. The event was widely successful this year with record attendance numbers, we are really proud of the effort and enjoying some down time! Thank You,

Bill Obermeier

Executive Director of Dariy Arts Center

It was wonderful working with you and Bridge House. Everyone did a terrific job and the food was excellent. I'm looking forward to the next opportunity to work together. You might also like this quote from one of our patrons in attendance last night: "It was the best I've been to in Boulder because the caterers passed food to patrons as they stood in line to check in, the music was already playing when the patrons showed up which was welcoming, and the food was the best I've had at an event in Boulder. Cheers!


Director of Willow

Community Table Kitchen Catering does not disappoint. There is an elegant ease to the dishes that John creates that is both tasty and beautiful. The staff is friendly and very professional. We have used them on numerous occasions and the food has received rave reviews! The added bonus is that you are supporting a local organization that is helping and doing so much good!
