The Banqueting Table

Taste & See!

The Banqueting Table is a non-profit catering company serving North Vancouver and the Lower Mainland since 1998. With passion and determination The Banqueting Table delivers the highest quality food and service for all occasions.

As a social enterprise, The Banqueting Table provides employment opportunities to single mothers and women who wish to re-enter the workforce.  Women learn job skills and regain self-confidence while preparing food and catering to a variety of events.

Our aim is to teach food preparation and customer service while encouraging teamwork and fostering a positive work attitude.  The Banqueting Table is a launch pad, encouraging the women on our team to explore their own interests and career paths when they feel ready to take that leap.  We make educational scholarships available to our women each year.

Our goal is to work as a stepping stone to bridge the gap between unemployment and a future career”- Joanne Laubauch, Director

” Our catering teams are led by women devoted to providing the best possible service to our client” – Brenda Snowden, Director
