Off-Site Lunch Catering
Our lunch salads and sandwiches are also available for off-site catering as either boxed lunches or family-style platters. Boxed lunches include either a salad with a baguette slice and dressing on the side, or a sandwich with chips and a side. If you’re looking for a little more variety, we can create sandwich platters and family-style salad bowls.
Off-site catering is available for pickup, or for delivery within a 3-mile radius from Groundswell, 201 Third Ave. SW in Cedar Rapids. Delivery orders must be a minimum of $100, and the delivery fee is $10. Please note, our staff is not available to stay and serve.
