Eat Offbeat

Eat Offbeat delivers authentic and home-style ethnic meals that are conceived, prepared and delivered by refugees resettled in NYC.

How it all started: When Manal arrived to New York in 2013, she was impressed with the quality and diversity of peanut butter, but disappointed with the Hummus. She started making her own based on a family recipe, which her friends started raving about. Her brother, Wissam, saw the opportunity there and said: “we should sell it!”. And so they went on a mission to find a hummus as good as their grandmother’s – that’s how they came to think of refugees being resettled in NY as an excellent community to find someone just like her.

The idea evolved since: although Manal and Wissam both love hummus and could eat it all day everyday, they knew there were endless other recipes around the world they’d like to discover and share. That’s where Chef Juan jumped on board, changing from his usual Michelin-star level kitchens to a more modest but much more exciting one, and helped them bring the idea to a boil.

Let Eat Offbeat cater your next event, whether it’s at home or an event, they have a authentic, off-the-beaten path meal made by refugees for you! Visit to place an order today!

Newman’s Own

Our Mission:

It’s always a privilege to share the Newman’s Own story – our history, who we are, what we do, and the values that have guided us since our founding. The “we” in the story includes Newman’s Own, Inc., a food and beverage company founded in 1982, and its sole owner, the Newman’s Own Foundation, an IRS-recognized charitable corporation, which carries on Paul Newman’s commitment to use all the money it receives (royalties and profits) from the sale of Newman’s Own products for charitable purposes.

Our “100% of Profits to Charity” commitment is one of two founding values upon which Newman’s Own is built (the other being “Quality Will Always Trump the Bottom Line”). It’s a very important part of our story, it’s in our DNA, it’s why we exist, it motivates all of us, and it’s the true heart of Newman’s Own. We are proud of this commitment and want to be clear and unambiguous about what we mean when we say “100% of Profits to Charity.” It’s not something we just thought up to boost sales, it’s not a play on words, and one shouldn’t need an accounting degree to understand it. We have been doing it for close to 35 years, and as of May 2017, have donated over $495 million to thousands of deserving organizations around the world.
