Maiden Voyage Catering

At Maiden Voyage Catering, we care about our community, our co-workers, our family, our neighborhoods

As a division of e.terra Kitchen, we, like our parent company, we want to make an impact and contribute to society in a positive manner. We are proud New Yorkers, living and working in one of the greatest cities in the world. e.terra Kitchen was born out of a desire to help the culinary community by providing a production facility and support for small food businesses, a majority of whom are minority owned.

Making a difference.

The e.terra team is made up of food entrepreneurs, immigrants and people who genuinely are keen to make a positive difference in our community. As part of this mission, e.terra launched its Monthly Team Volunteering (more on our MID Initiative below) in December 2021, and in 2023, we launched our Makers Pantry corporate gifting division to give a voice to our amazing and talented food & beverage members AND to support Southern Smoke Foundation and their initiatives in providing mental health and wellness support for the hospitality industry.

Makers Pantry

As a member of the culinary industry, we are acutely aware of the many mental and physical challenges being faced every day by hospitality workers, the stress of unforeseen circumstances and emergencies.

Makers Pantry supports and highlights unique, culinary artisans in NYC. We curate products to bring you the most unique local gift options. With a desire to give back, 5% of all sales are donated to the Southern Smoke Foundation. Southern Smoke Foundation is a nonprofit that supports members of the food and beverage industry nationwide through emergency relief funding and access to mental health services, and more specifically, to support their efforts in New York. 

Southern Smoke takes care of their own by putting dollars directly into the pockets of F+B workers when they need it most. Over the years, their nonprofit funds have been used to pay for essentials like groceries, clothing, and rent, and have covered the cost of car repossessions, lifesaving medications, natural disaster damages, lost wages, and more. Southern Smoke also offers accessibility of mental health services to F+B workers in five states including New York through a university affiliate program providing no-cost counseling. Whether there are mental health needs or unforeseen hardships, Southern Smoke is here for everyone in every part of the F+B ecosystem across the nation. 

We hope you will support this great cause by purchasing some gift boxes too, whether for your employees, co-workers; or family and friends.
