Outside Caterers

ALPLM rental clients do have an option to select an outside caterer. However, the client will be charged by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation an additional 25% surcharge on the rental charge total for that option.

The outside caterer will be asked to sign an Outside Caterer Agreement and provide appropriate licenses and insurance. Please speak with Facilities Rental Office staff to learn more about working with outside caterers.


The Museum is also home to Subway®. Please contact the Facilities Rental staff for a menu if you are interested in catering or a boxed lunch from Subway for daytime meetings or events.
