we craft food.

we create hospitality.

We give both to

our clients, our Guests,

& our migrant



who we are

Founded by Derek and Kat Christensen, Moonrise Standard is a small but mighty tour de force supported by a diverse community of chefs, cooks, farmers, butchers, nurturers & overall human hospitality enthusiasts.


what we do

We curate community dinner parties, experiential catering, and hands-on cooking classes. 100% of the profits from our dining experiences go to feeding hungry, homeless migrants + asylum seekers along the US Mexico border.


why we do it

We believe the bright glow of a nurturing meal and human kindness can light a long and encouraging path, a path we’re well aware lie ahead many a kind human.


“feed your soul,

Feed your neighbor”
