Whether your planning an event or just ordering food for a large number of people, Cenabo is a webapp that helps facilitate this tedious task to save you some time.
You can think of Cenabo as Evite for food orders (or, preferably, some other invite system). Cenabo's primary function is to let you create an event, assign a menu, and then send out requests for everyone to order what they want to eat. This is great for the occasional party you may have, but I think office meal ordering is a far better use for Cenabo's service. Among the many odd jobs I've had, one was in a writer's room for a television show. Part of my work involved taking lunch orders for all the writers and staff, which can be tough when you have 30-some people who are all doing something more important and aren't sure what they want to eat (or even if they want to eat). For those of you who have been in a situation where you need to take food orders at the office, you know how useful Cenabo could be. You can add all the menu options into it ahead of time and send out a request first thing in the morning. When it's time to order, everyone's orders will already be in the system.
Cenabo operates on a freemium model, letting you start with a free account that supports 50 people. Paid options are available if you need more people and more features.
