What is Social Enterprise?

According to the Center for Social Enterprise, the term is described as follows: social enterprises are revenue-generating businesses with a twist. Whether operated by a non-profit organization or by a for-profit company, a social enterprise has two goals: to achieve social, cultural, community economic and/or environmental outcomes; and to earn revenue. In Manna’s case, the revenue earned from its social enterprise program circles back to Manna’s main objective, which is feeding people in need.

When you hire Manna to bake cookies for your business or event, you’re helping our culinary students master their talents while also supporting our social enterprise program as explained above. In addition to baking cookies, Manna’s culinary school also takes on small catering jobs with the mission of bettering the community.
