Where Culinary Art Meets The Imagination…
What separates 1st To Roll Catering from other catering companies, is not only their delicious and healthy cuisine, but that they are a boutique production catering company that is family owned and operated. That means you get treated like family, not like a customer! They take great pride in their company, from preparation to presentation. On top of that, the chefs are extremely accommodating and very respectful to the entire crew. The cuisine is always farmer’s market driven; only using the highest quality, fresh, and local ingredients. You will NOT be disappointed!

The LA Preschool Fairs will be bigger than ever this year!

I LOVE My Gravity Weighted Blanket
Originally designed to help those with sensory disorder’s, autism and RLS, weighted blankets help reduce anxiety by giving a “feeling of being hugged”. The blanket molds to your body to provide pressure that aids in relaxing the nervous system. Think of it like a baby being swaddled. The blanket should be equivalent to about 10% of your body weight & the blanket is not meant to be shared. 100% without a doubt, that The Gravity Blanket changed my life. No more insomnia and no more waking up multiple times during the night. It is NOT an inexpensive purchase, but worth it beyond words! Use code JENSLIST15 for 15% off your purchase. My ONLY problem now is keeping the blanket on my bed. Little people in my house keep trying to steal it!

Every Lunch Matters Provides Food Vouchers To Hungry Students In LBUSD
My stepsister, Mary Sramek, founded Every Lunch Matters when she realized students were going hungry in LBUSD.

Your donation can be made to your school of choice.
