The act of sharing food during grief transcends the centuries, countries and cultures. It is a way of showing love and support, and provides comfort and continuity at an uncertain time.
At Burstows Funerals, we have changed our catering to table service to allow us to again offer comforting food for 30-50 people in the Pioneers Room following a service. This allows COVID Safe guidelines to be in place during this uncertain time. The Pioneers Room
, located on the grounds of the TS Burstow Funeral Home and Chapel, is a private venue to meet in after the funeral. The Pioneers Room is a friendly and uplifting environment.
For just $15 per person, plus room hire of $150, guests receive an individual plate featuring a selection of gourmet sandwiches and, during colder times, a hearty pumpkin soup with sliced French stick is offered. You can also choose from a selection of muffins including petite blueberry, double choc, luscious raspberry, and pineapple and cream, as well as passionfruit sponge, scones with jam and cream, tea, coffee and orange juice. Surcharge will apply for weekends.
Food helps the conversation to flow at a time and place where you feel safe to share your sadness as well as stories of happier times, to laugh and cry – to know you are not alone, and to begin to heal.
Burstows are also able to offer packaged, pre-ordered take away options, please discuss options with our team.
