Funeral Catering Sydney

Specialised funeral catering for memorials, wakes and funeral receptions.

Meals have brought families together since the beginning of time.

A catered funeral reception allows family and friends to continue spending time together while sharing memories and comfort.



We are genuinely sorry to hear of your loss and are here to try and help you as much as possible. Although catering may not be the first thing that comes to mind in times of sorrow, a trusted local Sydney catering company can be invaluable in catering for a funeral or memorial service. Make a catered reception or food and beverage delivery part of the funeral service for your loved one. With a funeral catering or wake catering package, we can arrange the funeral reception food for you.

Rest assured that we have years of experience catering for funerals, wakes, and life celebrations, offering a professional and supportive service to you and your loved ones at this most difficult of times.

With our delivery service, we can also arrange the catering for the funeral reception to be delivered to your home or another venue of your choice, giving you more time to focus on what’s most important—honoring the life of your loved one.

Our aim, as with all our events, is to make your occasion run as smoothly as possible. From experience, finger food and cold buffets suit funeral catering very well. Cold options are easier to set up and the arrival time of guests and family becomes less important.

We understand funerals are planned at short notice and that’s why we are here to respond quickly, helping you to create a menu that works for your family. Our funeral menus can accommodate any special requests and dietary requirements such as vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free/dairy-free diets – please just let us know your requirements.

We can offer a wide range of easy-to-serve funeral catering options for a funeral wake or memorial service, including finger food buffets, sandwich platters, or afternoon teaand we can work with your funeral director where appropriate. We advise tea, coffee, and soft drinks as they are always well received and can be included in many of our catering packages.

Nothing brings us together like sharing a meal, no matter what the occasion.

In times of grief and pain, food can sustain us and provide a momentary respite. Honoring a lost loved one’s life can become easier and less stressful with food. Whether you prefer a full buffet meal or simple appetisers to sustain those present at the wake, you can achieve this basic goal quickly, easily, and within budget with the help of Tall Poppies Catering.


Funeral catering when done right can make the planning and grieving process a little easier. Learn how to plan and provide catering funeral services.

  • Plan Ahead: First, it’s important to know when and where the funeral reception or wake will take place. That way, you can begin planning what type of food options you will need to have available. Will it be an early morning ceremony suitable for breakfast, or an afternoon celebration that will be better served by sandwiches? Remember to keep it tasteful and simple.
  • Get A Count: Do you have an estimate for how many guests will be in attendance for the service? It’s a good idea to get a head count so that you can properly plan for the seating arrangements and funeral catering.
  • Don’t Do It Alone: With everything else going on, it shouldn’t be up to you to prepare the food spread. That’s why you need help from our Tall Poppies funeral catering services. We make it easy for you to celebrate life by providing tasty, healthy, and simple food options for your funeral wake. We will do everything we can to assist you in planning and preparing the funeral catering.
