To book an event with Homegirl Catering, we require a Signature and  50% deposit of the initial menu and service proposal. Final payments of the finalized menu and chosen services must be paid 3 days before the event date. If no payment is received or arranged prior to your event date, our staff has been instructed not to move forward with your order.

Changes to the event order can be made to the initial proposal as needed. Menus, guest counts, and event details must be finalized 7 days prior to the event date to allow time for our team to build out your event.

Accordingly, we have adopted a policy that all payments are non-refundable and non-transferable if you cancel the event, without exception, and these amounts shall constitute liquidated damages in the event of cancellation. 

Furthermore, for deliveries and pick-up orders, cancellations 5 days prior to the event will be charged the full amount. For full service event cancellations 14 days prior to the event will be charged the full amount.
