09 Jun Eat My Lunch: Buy One Give One – Lunches for Everyone
Founder: Lisa King
Sadly, families around the world keep kids at home from school because they don’t have any food to send for lunch. Eat my lunch is a for profit social enteprise helping to solve this problem and offering healthy and delicious lunchtime meals at the same time. Prepared by award winning chef Michael Merideth, Eat My Lunch makes to order lunches that are delivered to you at your place of work or school. In addition to this for every lunch you purchase another lunch is given free of charge to a child in need so that they too can benefit from having healthy nutritious food to help them through their day. There is also the option of donating your lunch to a child in need so that two lunches are given to children less fortunate.
Why we love Eat My Lunch: Eat My Lunch recently launched a crowd-lending campaign seeking $1 million in bonds, raising more than $800K. The social enterprise is demonstrating that a social impact and for-profit business can thrive together.
