New York’s Food Startup Eat Offbeat Employs Refugees as Chefs
Culinary with a Social Good !
Food startup Eat Offbeat employs refugees as their chefs. From their own family recipes, these individuals cook authentic meals to feed the ever-welcoming New York crowd.
A Personal Touch
Refugees employed at Eat Offbeat originate from different countries, facing the refugee crises such as Iraq. One such individual, now known as Chef DhuhaJasim grew up in Iraq eating her mother’s homemade croquettes. Now, she has joined the Eat Offbeat team and earns a daily wage inviting exciting New Yorker’s to try the same recipe!
Boons of the Business
Eat Offbeat is a delivery-only restaurant that has hired 12 women from at least five countries since its inception. Along with its great tasting food, the startup is also giving women all of whom have not worked in a professional kitchen before and who are not aware of what holding a professional career means, an opportunity of job development, training and colleagues that have become their family.
The company combines New York’s great love for food with the culinary heritage and grandmother’s recipes of multiple different countries. The homemade dishes offered by these chefs give the New York people a local food experience, like a dish made with love. Eating like a local is just what the busy go-getters of the city need!
