Plates Midtown is an employment training program of Saint John’s Program for Real Change and a proud partner of the Farm to Fork movement, striving for a more sustainable future at all levels. We work with regional farmers, dairies, bakeries and ranchers to provide you with fresh and sustainable ingredients. Our dressings, sauces and spreads are all house-made. Our menu offers a variety of fresh and affordable sandwiches and salads. Your meal is made to order and packaged in earth-friendly and recyclable materials. Together, we feed “an appetite for change.”

By dining at Plates Midtown, Plates Café, or by choosing Plates Catering to serve your next event, you’re not only eating fresh and locally sourced food – you’re supporting the employment training of Saint John’s clients and contributing to the success of the program as a whole. That’s because 100% of proceeds directly support mothers working to recuperate and reengineer their lives.
