When I started this blog, I expressed an interest in not only starting a bakery one day, but to have it connected to a social cause – I just do not know the best way to do this. To find my path, I explained that I need this blog to be interactive – I share some information about food-related social enterprises to get an idea on how these two concepts are already related, and you add your own ideas to the mix. As promised, I would like to feature food related social enterprises that I get inspiration from. I thought that for my first feature, I should select a social enterprise that does work all around the world.
The Community Food Enterprise promotes locally owned food businesses as they believe that “locally owned food businesses can help more people access healthy, sustainably grown food and strengthen local economies by fostering income, jobs, and resources within the community.” To raise awareness, Community Food Enterprise selects 24 different food related social enterprises from all over the world, and then develops a report to demonstrate how these organizations can provide tools for economic development and anti-poverty.
