When Food Matters. You Matter.

Food For Thought whisks together ingredients, community and a generous amount of sustainability. Add service, toss in distinguished venues, transfer to a plate. And serve.



Food For Thought disrupts traditional catering services. What you have come to expect as acceptable is elevated into food that speaks about you. Sprawling tables of you-inspired dishes, attended by a considerate staff, your celebrations will be unforgettable.


These chef-created dishes make the most of your time at the office or home for one reason: we make it for you. Food For Thought brings the freshest (and most customizable) dishes to your door for a deliciously stress-free meal.

Located on 21st street in the South Loop, the landmark Mae District of Chicago is a profoundly historical yet contemporary 10,000 square foot space. The original exposed brick and steel beams of Mae District has set a standard by which all other event spaces are judged.

Dining Services

Everyone has their go-to spot, close to work or school, to grab a quick bite. Food For Thought works to bring those spots to your buildings. Our hand-selected menus are handmade that day, making healthy options and your building that much more sustainable.

Food for Thought

"From start to finish FFT made us feel like absolute ROYALTY. The moment we walked into our tasting we knew they were the ones. Every moment of the experience was so personalized. It felt like we were being truly cared for. Lorena is an absolutely wonderful human and guide. And don’t get us started about the food. Delectable and elegant. And it says it all that 2 months later we still are receiving random texts from our wedding guests about how memorable the food was. People were blown away. We feel grateful to have been able to create such a memorable experience through food with FFT. You will not be disappointed."
