Manal Kahi

Eat Offbeat
Co-Founder & CEO
Manal is the co-founder and CEO of Eat Offbeat, a social enterprise that delivers authentic meals made by refugees who now call New York City home. She has a passion for traveling, social impact and great food (not necessarily in that order). She moved to NYC to pursue a career in international environmental affairs but the disappointing Hummus she found in grocery stores led her on a different journey. She co-founded Eat Offbeat in 2015 to help New Yorkers discover authentic dishes from around the world all the while providing recently resettled refugees, who are passionate about cooking, with a quality job and a place to thrive. Eat Offbeat has since fed over 60,000 New Yorkers and reached over 10 Million impressions worldwide. Eat Offbeat's story has been featured in numerous media outlets including Forbes, The New York Times, The Guardian, Newsweek, Fast Company and others.
