Does catering code as dining?

I'm going to be spending about 3K next month on food for my fella's 40th and thought it would be nice to maximize some CC rewards. Does anyone know if catering codes as dining?

It varies with the card.   On my Sam's Club MC, catering is included in Dining.   However, on my Cash+,  Catering doesn't count, but Cash+ uses the more specific MCCs for Restaurant and Fast Food.   Not sure about Bars & Cafes on that card.

Thanks so much for that. I was going to break in the new Marvel card with the 3% for part of it and my upromise sallie mae with the other. One of the restaurants I'm getting food from is on the 10% list so I'm hoping!
