At Ford Funeral Home, we have seen firsthand the healing that can take place when family and friends gather together, either before or after the service, to take part in refreshments and reminisce about their loved one. But funeral planning can be a challenge in the midst of grief, and the last thing you need to be worrying about is making reservations at a local restaurant for a large group or planning something in your own home.

That’s why we began offering reception services to our families. Whether you want something simple or more elaborate, we can meet your needs and wishes. You may select your own caterer, or choose our preferred caterer Rising Stars Academy. This wonderful organization – led by a head chef who has worked in restaurants across the country, including New York City and San Francisco – is a school for adults aged 18-26 with special needs. Rooted in the culinary arts, they seek to prepare the students to be gainfully employed in the future.  You may view their menu here.

Reach out to our caring staff today, and let us handle all of the details for you.
