International Institute Rolls Out Pop-Up Dinners To Support Refugee And Immigrant Caterers

With large social gatherings a rarity during the pandemic, catering businesses are struggling.

But the International Institute of St. Louis is helping immigrant- and refugee-owned catering businesses find a new outlet. Starting Nov. 4, the organization is launching a physically distanced version of its popular Wednesday lunches — now Wednesday night dinners available for curbside pickup every other week.

Dinners will be served by caterers specializing in Egyptian, Bosnian and other types of cuisine.

They’ve all launched their business with the help of the institute, which assists immigrants and refugees in obtaining business licenses, loans for equipment and kitchen space.
