Social Innovator Directory iCater

iCater is a Pine Street Inn social enterprise that prepares and delivers 19,000 delicious, nutritious, and affordable family-style meals a week to nonprofits, schools, camps, human service providers and other organizations in and around Boston, 365 days a year. We work with you to create customized menus that focus on high-quality, nutritious food within your budget, no matter how tight.

Every one of our meals supports our training program, where we help break down barriers to end the cycle of homelessness through culinary training, life skills and job placement, all leading toward self-sufficiency.

We have come a long way since we began in 2000, and each day provides a new opportunity for our trainees to cultivate the skills needed to successfully move into the workforce. iCater strives to lend a hand to all our partners in the community the way we know best: keeping them well-nourished!
