21 Benevolent Catering Businesses

From Arts and Crafts Community Enterprises to Italian B Corps

— June 20, 2013 — Social Good
From arts and crafts community enterprises to Italian market-style B Corporations, this top list of benevolent catering businesses are good right until the last bite. Some of the companies listed here do catering as their primary mode of business, but others, offer catering as training among a list of other things for their employment-based social enterprise that attempts to create jobs. Those are just a few examples.

There is also a certified B Corporation on this list of benevolent catering businesses. Based in Chicago, Illinois, Zullo's serves high quality Italian-influenced food including apple and fig jam sandwiches and egg paninis. Less catering-focused, too, is the Social Impact app which lets you find catering companies through its GPS-enabled services based in 12 cities.
