Our Mission

Belong Catering is different.

Not just different in that we always begin with FRESH ingredients.

Not just different in that we have professional tradespeople cooks preparing all of the food from scratch onsite each day.

Not just different in that our lowest standard of purchasing is organic and that we source locally, we encourage and reward sustainability, that we know our farmers, artisans, craftspeople and the entire, preferably short, journey your ingredients took to get to Evergreen Brick Works.

But entirely different in that we will be able to customize your food entirely for your event. We love to work directly with you to understand the food that means something to you, the dishes that have mattered in your life, the touchstones and the cultures that give us these wonderful variations of both experience and personal attachment.

Therefore, please peruse these menus and event configurations to understand some base pricing, some basic configurations and, hopefully, enjoy some seasonal examples in each category of dishes that we have honourably served in the past, but know that you can have exactly these dishes, or we will happily meet with you in person and you will have the exact menu that pleases you and will delight, energize and give sustenance to your guests.

Executive Chef

Brad Long

A renowned Canadian chef with a career spanning over 30 years, Brad Long is a pioneer in advocating ethical, local, organic, and sustainable practices from dirt to dish and a strong, vocal leader in the national food scene. Long is currently chef and owner of Café Belong and Belong Catering, where his understanding of food is reflected in the fresh, delicious fare he procures and serves every day. Long’s earlier accomplishments range from rebuilding the food and beverage program at the CN Tower to creating the culinary programs for the Air Canada Centre and one of Toronto’s finest dining rooms, The Platinum Club, as well as building a world street food program for Toronto FC’s BMO Field. As an experienced executive manager and leader, Long is often sought after to share his knowledge and passion for good food. His humour and expertise was tapped as co-host of Food Network’s hit show Restaurant Makeover. Born and raised in the lakeside community of Port Dover, Ontario, eating locally grown food as a simple fact of family life, Long never strays from his deeply rooted belief that “Food is fuel, food is medicine, food is love.”

Executive Sous Chef

Laird MacArthur

Born and raised in rural Southern Ontario, Laird was introduced to the idea of buying fresh food from the local farm gate and fish shop from the outset. Now running the kitchens and in charge of all food procurement for Belong Catering and Café Belong, Laird has cooked and staged in some of the finest restaurants in Toronto and France.

“We have ordered lunches from Belong Catering for two years now and we are continuously grateful and impressed by Belong’s willingness to accommodate special diets and requests. On top of their flexibility, the food is always delicious and beautifully presented!”

our vendors

Belong Catering supports local farmers and artisans. These are people that work to bring the very best, the most intense, the ripest, juiciest, flavour bursting and nutrient dense ingredients available in Ontario, then Canada, and in some rare cases: the world. Our lowest standard of procurement is organic.
