Need advice/suggestions for dairy catering of funeral in North York

I'm helping a family friend by sourcing catering for his mother, who died this evening. All new to me, thankfully. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Funeral will be this Thursday. Needs to be dairy only and will be in their home.
Looking on line, but have no idea of who's good or not.
Thanks in advance.

Hmmm, should this be in Food and Drink? If so, would a mod please redirect this. Thanks.

It's looking like it may be an afternoon thing, so need not be dairy only.

When you say dairy only, does this mean cow products only or can it include milk from other species?

What does "dairy only" mean?
A glass of wine with you, sir, and the ladies I'll enjoy.

For those who are asking ...
Guessing this is for a Jewish Funeral
https://jewishfunerals.com/shiva-customs/

OP, I suggest you make inquiries thru the Funeral Home the family is using
No doubt they have chosen one popular with the Jewish Community
So will be familiar with such Customs
And have relative contacts

And ... I am sorry for your loss

What's the deal with dairy only? One thing I know is these funeral homes milk you for all your worth.

I've been skipping the funeral home for all the funerals I've had to arrange lately. Straight from the hospital to the cemetery and a service at a grave then a wake after at a home. Way less expensive.
