Nestled in the heart of central Washington, Kittitas County houses over 40,000 residents and prides itself on deep historical roots and a generational community. One family in particular, has called Kittitas County their home since 1876.

The Gilmour family traveled to Kittitas County in a covered wagon with a plan to bring innovation and farm fresh food to the community. The pioneering Gilmour’s opened the doors of Gilmour and Gilmour grocery stores over 100 years ago providing the area with fresh, organic, and locally grown food. Not to forget, they also brought technology to the community as Fred Gilmour owned and operated the first mobile grocery truck.

Before closing their doors in 2003, Gilmour and Gilmour stores always modeled their business after community-based needs and creating lasting and personal relationships with each customer. The Gilmour Family may be the pioneers of Kittitas Valley, but now, they are bringing a fresh, dynamic catering service to the area.

The values established by Gilmour and Gilmour grocery stores over 100 years ago still stand at the forefront of Ravenous Catering’s mission. Ravenous understands the importance of community-based relationships and maintaining those relationships through good food and impeccable customer service.

With a longstanding history of cooking quality farm to table food and the people of Kittitas County, Valarie Gilmour is confident that bringing Ravenous Catering to the forefront of the Kittitas community will be a success. Valarie says, “It’s all about family, and I want to continue to share good food and conversation for the people of the Kittitas Valley.”
