  • I absolutely love working with Gina and Food for Thought Catering. She always provides so many great ideas and variety in menus to choose from and really took the time to work with me to make sure our menu was perfect with regards to the season, our guests, the event type and our budget. Everything was beautifully prepared, on-time and absolutely delicious! Our guests just raved about the food. I would not hesitate to recommend Food for Thought to anyone for any type of event and I look forward to working with Gina and her team again!

  • Gina makes sure every detail is perfect! The food is always delicious! People are still talking about how good it was. staff is always professional, and they make sure not only the bride and groom, but each and every guest gets what they need. My guests got a little rowdy and FFTC was very patient and were so amazing even though the party went longer and got crazier than planned. Very flexible and helpful beyond catering issues that came up. Gina will always go the extra mile to satisfy any special requests. She also has relationships with rental vendors and can get discounts and offer expertise with buying alcohol, renting china, glassware, anything, she always has an answer and knows how many. we didn't run out of any beer, glasses, or napkins. Everything was personal, great communication with other vendors, and amazing food that cant be matched. Even the leftovers made my mouth water! All food is local and grown with integrity, and the flavors in the recipes will pleasantly surprise... Read more

  • There is none other as far as I know! Food for Thought Catering exceeded my expectations, the expectations of our Board, and the expectations of our guests. FFTC is truly an encore performance-type company.... you want them back again and again. Gina and her staff understand the term, Customer satisfaction, because that is what they strive for from beginning to end. FFTC will always get the call when I need a catering service for any event!

  • Gina has provided catering services for our family and business events for the last 7 years. She recently handled a 300 person funeral reception with 2 days notice, and has done luncheons and dinners and even an outdoor wedding in the middle of a raging hurricane (!)with the same flair and quality that we would expect from a Philly or NYC caterer. Two large thumbs UP for her preparation, her attention to quality and detail, and the high positive energy she brings to her work. Most importantly is her passion for customer service. The day of each of our events, Gina always introduces the staff to our family and gives everyone a sense of personal touch which makes so much of a difference. At every single event we have hosted, guests have asked us for Gina's name and number. I could not recommend her any more highly than we do.

  • I have had the pleasure to use Food for Thought Catering for the last year to cater our business lunches, as well as our company Christmas party. Gina has catered seventeen exceptional events for Stoner Inc. Gina's attention to detail has been impeccable. Her knowledge of food and the catering business has been a blessing for our events! Gina's service, as well as the service from all her staff has always been remarkable. They have always been willing to go the extra mile to make sure everything runs smoothly and perfectly, without concern on my part. Finaly, and most importantly, their food has always been authentic, fresh and prepared without ANY issues. It does not matter if we are having grilled steaks, Itailian, Asian, Mexican or a Greek meal. It has always been wonderful and authentic. FFTC has only ever used fresh ingredients, which they have even prepared on site, which has made all the difference in the quality of their food. I have felt very previliged to work with suc...

  • Gina and Food for Thought Catering made my wedding day and the planning process perfect! I honestly would not change a thing. We wanted a gluten free, Mexican menu for 250 people and that's exactly what we got. I still have people calling me to say that it was the best wedding reception food they have ever had. Not only that but Gina took all of the headaches away for my mom and I. We truly enjoyed the day and the process leading up to it because of Gina's efforts! I just can't say enough good things... It was the most important day of my life and was perfect!!

  • Food for Thought Catering service was the best for our Daughter's wedding. Gina was so helpful in giving us ideas for the menu and working within our budget. She met several times with us to make decisions for the reception. We really enjoyed working with her and the food was outstanding and excellent! Her catering staff did a wonderful job on the day of the wedding and the presentation of food was gorgeous! Everyone complimented us on the food and we even got to take the leftovers home.

  • Food for thought Catering catered my parents 50th anniversary party. I had never planned an event before and I was on a limited budget. The owner spent a lot of time with me working out a menu I could afford and the food was phenomenal! Everything was so fresh and delicious and the staff was wonderful and took all the worry off of me. They not only did their jobs professionally, but they went over and above with the guests, set up and clean up. Our guests loved the food and the experience was flawless. I highly recommend this company for any size event.

  • On July 23, 2011, we had the honor of having Food For Thought Catering as a part of our daughter’s wedding reception at Lime Spring Farm in Lancaster, P.A. From our first meeting with Gina, she focused on sharing ideas and worked to understand the type of reception Mollie wanted to create. We were able to communicate our desire to have a beautiful, elegant wedding that included very specific food and bar selections. Beginning that day and every day thereafter, Gina treated us like family. Gina’s years of event planning experience is invaluable. Her approach is to understand the entire event in order to provide the best plan for your reception. Gina created an amazing menu with a unique presentation of the food that truly reflected the passion she has for her business and the clients she serves. Mollie wanted the food to reflect her southern heritage and the bountiful harvest of the Lancaster region. She also wanted the food service to include beautiful displays and pro... Read more

  • When my son and daughter-in-law were planning their reception, they kept saying how easy and stress free it was working with Food for Thought Catering. They felt Gina took the extra step to try to meet all their needs, as well as their wants and helped them stay within their budget. The night of the reception, everything they wanted was executed just as they requested. The Ballroom looked absolutely beautiful and the food was delicious, prepared perfectly and served hot.There were plenty of appitizers and dinner for all. The staff did not miss a beat. Right there if you needed anything and did it all with a smile. Nothing was too much to ask. What struck me personally was when Gina made it a point to introduce herself to my husband and I and to let us know what a pleasure it was dealing with our son and daughter-in-law. Everything about that day was so special and Food for Thought make it so wonderful and personal.

  • Gina's company Food for Thought went way above and beyond our expectation for our wedding reception. I had a vision of how I wanted our night to be-intimate, elegant, and Italian. Gina brought those ideas to life. Our meal was served family style-and true to form with Italian families there was more than enough food to go around. The food was delicious-chicken parm, roasted peppers and sausage, pasta in a lemon herb garlic olive oil sauce! The presentation was stunning. By the end of the night we heard from almost all of our guests it was the best "wedding" food they have ever had. Besides being a fantastic chef, Gina was amazing to work with. By the end of our meetings, menu planning, and replanning-it felt like we were working with a friend. Gina was able to work within our budget and made the planning much easier with many helpful suggestions from the bar to the linens and everything in between. The Food for Thought staff were equally amazing and attentive to my fa... Read more

  • I'd have to say that I am Gina Diambrosio and Food for Thoughts BIGGEST fan! The proof is in the pudding and I will prove it! FFTC is MY first choice caterer for family events and even a short trip to the beach! More importantly, I am the Banquet Manager/Wedding coordinator at Legacy Ballroom and I chose Gina as my FIRST CHOICE CATERER for the ballroom. I did this because the quality of service and passion that Gina puts into every event she caters is just simply exemplary! What I tell my brides about Gina is this..." you will feel like you are her only bride for the year!" "It is all about you as a couple...and what you love and don't love and what YOU are all about!" "Gina goes over and above the call of duty and becomes friends with her clients." For Gina, it's not all about the money but more about her wanting to cook for people to make them happy and make all of their wishes and dreams come true. Her food is all created from the finest ingredients. Her produce is local and fresh. ... Read more
