Yes there is  liability under service tax w.e.f. 10.9.2004   under outdoor caterering. Since the materials ( food) are also transferred, the value of the same if indicated separately ( appropriate VAT paid) would be available as a deduction. Where such detail not available a 50% abatement is allowed provided that the bill clearly indicates that food was also provided.
