Named the only certified green catering company in Napa County by the Bay Area Green Business Program, Elaine Bell Catering appreciates sustainability and the integrity of ingredients used. We strive to use organic, sustainable produce, hormone-free meats and poultry, as well as wild fish approved by the Monterey Aquarium Seafood Watch List. 

Elaine Bell Catering has partnered with Napa Recycling and Waste Services (NRWS) to allow for complete recycling and composting both at our state-of-the-art kitchen in Napa, as well as at events.
