With approval of our office, guests may also bring in their own food and nonalcoholic beverages.

Should you wish to work with another caterer not on this list, please check with our office prior to signing a contract with them for services. An additional fee of up to $250 may be charged to cover our staff’s time to provide a walk through of our venue as well as to ensure the relevant paperwork is on file with our office.

Events serving alcohol (only beer, wine, and champagne are allowed) require permission from FMW’s office and an alcohol license from the DC government. Alcohol must be served by a licensed bartender. Many of these caterers have an alcohol license that may cover your event and can provide a bartender.
