Manal Kahi

Co-Founder & CEO
Eat Offbeat

Manal is the co-founder and CEO at Eat Offbeat, a social enterprise that delivers authentic ethnic meals made by refugees now chefs in NYC. She has a passion for traveling, social impact and great food (not necessarily in that order). She moved to NYC to kick-start a career in international environmental affairs but the Hummus she found on supermarket shelves led her on a different journey. She co-founded Eat Offbeat to help New Yorkers discover authentic off-the-beaten-path cuisines from around the world all the while providing recently resettled refugees who are passionate about cooking with a job and a place to thrive. Eat Offbeat has since been featured in numerous media outlets including The Guardian, Forbes, the Huffington Post, Newsweek, Fast Company and others.
