Family Style Meals

iCater provides delicious and nutritious meal service to nonprofit and congregate meal providers in greater Boston. Because iCater is operated by a nonprofit, we understand the importance of high-quality yet affordable meals. 

Freshly prepared family-style meals have been at the heart of iCater since its inception in 2000, and we’re thrilled to be able to provide your organization with great nutrition as we in turn nourish our community.

Who We Feed

    Schools, daycares, camps, pre-schools, after school programs
    Our menus are designed by our chefs and reviewed by our certified nutritionist to ensure that we’re providing our community’s youth with the fuel they need to succeed. If your school needs reimbursable meals, iCater complies with CACFP guidelines.
    Shelters, permanent and temporary housing programs
    Shelter and food are two basic human needs. We partner with organizations that provide shelter to help nourish our community and support those in need. By linking our efforts with other housing organizations, we can help stabilize our community and tackle food and housing insecurity.
    Addiction recovery programs, pre-release programs, mental health programs
    So that Human Service Providers can focus on their clients’ needs, we focus on their food and nutrition. While these organizations are changing lives and strengthening communities, we are taking care of all their food service needs by providing comforting hot meals, hearty lunches, complete breakfasts, and healthy snacks.
