The Cabrillo Culinary Arts Catering program provides catering services during most of the year. Please refer to Sesnon House Catering for more information about the menus for weddings and other events. When Cabrillo’s Culinary Program is unavailable a licensed caterer from our list of preferred vendors must be used.

Prices are subject to change without notice.
