FAQs about finger food catering
How many finger food items should you serve per person?
We recommend different amounts depending on the length of your event:
- 30-minute event: 3 pieces of finger food per person
- 1-hour event: 6 pieces of finger food per person
- 2-hour event: 9 pieces of finger food per person
For events that are three hours or more, we'd also recommend having a more substantial option as well, or to have a grazing station where guests can grab more nibbles as needed.
Finger food catering isn't usually intended to be a filling meal, but you also don't want anyone leaving hungry.
