TST GIVES BaCk - community support

We were very honored to be able to provide Community meals to those in need over

the last 10 weeks. Special thanks to our volunteers and Reinhart Foods for their assistance.  To date we have donated

over 2700 meals and  discounted 

nearly 6000 meals


We love the smiles (hidden under masks) of the hardworking heroes at St. Paul Children's Hospital who enjoy our 50 box lunches we deliver each week!




Dear Customers, Vendors and Friends,


Our hearts are heavy given the events of the last few weeks amidst the backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crises and lawless riots.  Despite these challenging times, we continue to keep you all in our prayers.


For nearly 30 years TST Creative Catering has been a part of over 20,000 events – from corporate events to graduations, from weddings to funerals and from family reunions to even Christmas celebrations.  Often times we have served multiple generations in one family, which has been our distinct honor and privilege and filled us and our entire staff with great pride.  Over the years our goal has always remained the same – to help our customers create lasting memories from wonderful celebrations with outstanding food at reasonable prices and great service and we stand ready to continue that tradition today.


Over the past couple months, we have tried to do our part to “Pay It Forward” in our community.  To date, we have donated over 2,400 meals and discounted nearly 3,000 meals to those in need, including hospital staff, first responders and struggling families.  As an average, that is more than 350 meals for each one of our employees that we have provided to those in need.  In addition, we have continued our operations to senior homes, childcare centers and a few of our corporate customers as well as offering “Take Out” options for meals which we are hoping to continue to build on with your help.


Given the nature of our large events, a vast majority of our customers have unfortunately canceled their events or in some cases postponed their events until next year which we are very grateful to have booked.  We have done what we can to obtain assistance from various agencies or groups and are deeply appreciative of whatever assistance we have received.  However, that assistance is not, nor should it be, a long term solution. 


Instead, we are in this for the long haul and we are committed to staying afloat and doing everything we can to continue to provide the great food and service you have become accustomed to.  As a result, we are proud and excited to be opening our “Pay It Forward” Patio right here at Ideal Hall on Monday, June 15th.   We are converting part of our parking lot into a beautiful, unique outdoor space perfect for a great meal or gathering space complete with drinks!  We will be open for lunch and dinner Mondays through Saturdays. 


Many have asked us (and we are more used to asking others) what can they do to help?  Here are a few ways you can help us through these challenging times:


  1. Visit us at the “Pay It Forward” Patio – often, and spread the word.  We are not looking for a handout, we want to be a great resource for the neighborhood and a destination for all!  We remain committed to utilizing a portion of our proceeds to continue to do the valuable work within our community.
  2. Order Take Out – we have a great selection of wonderful food.  LINK Help us spread the word and think of us and other small businesses as another option when you need a break from cooking.
  3. Corporate Functions – we have great options for your businesses.  Individually packaged meals to allow fellowship while maintaining social distancing. 
  4. Social Gatherings – if you are ready so are we!  The capacity at both of our locations is 350 people.  The new guidelines allow us to accommodate groups of up to 175 people now at either Ideal Hall in St. Paul or The Scandia Creamery.  If you or anyone you know needs space and/or catering for any type of event we can assist!  We have guidelines in place for food service and social distancing.

Too often people after the fact wish they could have helped a situation, but were unaware of the need because those needing assistance were too proud or embarrassed to ask for help.  We at TST Creative Catering are proud of what we do, but not so proud nor embarrassed to ask for your help now in our time of need.  We are simply asking for a helping hand, not a handout, by considering us for your entertainment or dining experiences either at our “Pay It Forward” Patio, ordering take out or catering for corporate events and social gatherings going forward. 



Thank you for your support and assistance!!


Mike & Rhonda Pape
