Catering & Receptions

We know food provides nourishment and comfort unlike anything else, so that is why Forest Hills Palm City Chapel offers catered events in conjunction with visitations and funeral services. Memories of holiday meals, birthday dinners and secret family recipes create a special bond between the people and the food we love. We can help you celebrate that love by sharing those food favorites in a relaxed gathering.
