To avoid any charges, Fresh Leaf Catering must be notified of a cancellation 72 business hours prior to the scheduled event. Cancellations after this deadline, or “no shows”, will be billed accordingly, with a minimum charge of $10.00.

For Conferences and Weddings canceled 7 to 30 days prior to the event will be charged a fee of 25% of final costs.  Cancellations from 0-6 days from the event will be billed 100% of the final cost.

In the event that UMD has an emergency closing, ALL Catered events are CANCELLED.

Kirby Student Center Alcohol Policy:

The Regents of the University of Minnesota have approved an alcohol license for the Kirby Student Center building, the Kirby Terrace, and the plaza between Kirby Student Center and Kirby Drive (the licensed venue”). The license allows Fresh Leaf Catering to serve alcohol at approved events in the licensed venue, rather than requiring customers to contract with a third-party vendor for alcohol service. 

For more details, please refer to the UMD Alcohol Policy. 


  • Please Call Fresh Leaf Catering with inquiries, as special requests are available
  • Alcohol service requests must be submitted at least (2) weeks out prior to the event. Much Sooner for a Special Occasion Larger Event Please. 
  • A UMD Police officer may be required to staff the event.

*Any gratuities collected are put into a UMD Dining Services scholarship fund for our wonderful student staff.
