Hamby Catering is providing the Lowcountry a new and safe way to celebrate life’s special moments with curated micro-events menus. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, social distancing has made it hard to gather with family and friends for weddings, engagements, the welcoming of new babies and other significant occasions.

Fill the void and celebrate safely alongside family and friends with Hamby Catering’s newly curated micro-events menus, made for intimate gatherings of 10-50 people. The innovative menus focus on safety throughout every aspect of a small gathering. Fully staffed micro-events and disposable glassware are provided to limit the use of shared utensils so that the community can reconnect while limiting the spread of coronavirus.

“For 41+ years, we have been the catering partner for life’s most memorable moments in the Lowcountry,” said Candice Wigfield, President of Hamby Catering. “Since mid-March, we have been pivoting to accommodate cancellations and postponements, all-the-while focusing on safety and finding ways to allow for celebrations with friends and family to continue, although they may look a bit different than originally planned. Our clients have always made us part of their traditions, and with our micro-events, we can fill the void for those who want to celebrate safely and intimately.”

As the celebrations continue, whether an intimate outdoor ceremony or a backyard movie night with friends, Hamby Catering’s micro-events menus add flavor to the festivities. The menus feature classic Hamby favorites, including 6-Hour Red Wine Braised Boneless Short Ribs and Slow-Roasted Carolina Pulled Pork BBQ.
