UCR Procurement Services maintains the list of pre-qualified Outside Food Sources below. ONLY pre-qualified Outside Food Sources from this list may be used to furnish on-campus food to UCR staff and students. Outside Food Sources cannot be used for catering services. If you are interested in adding a new vendor to this list, or using an Outside Food Source for catering services, please contact Matt Burke at 951-827-3095 (or campus ext. 2-3095)


The following suppliers have been pre-qualified to furnish food for UCR. If selected for a campus event, a Department may place the order provided the total cost does not exceed the department's Low Value Purchasing Authorization (LVPA). If the order exceeds the departments LVPA, a purchase requisition must be submitted to Procurement Services.

  • In most cases, Procurement Services has not negotiated prices with the suppliers so you will need to negotiate prices on a order-by-order per volume basis.
  • When planning events, be sure to visit this link to be sure your meals are with UC policy guidelines.
