A meal delivery startup called 'Eat Offbeat' hires refugees to cook traditional meals for hungry customers. While there are many food delivery services to choose from, this particular platform offers dishes that consumers are unlikely to find anywhere else.

Eat Offbeat is a New York-based company that hires refugees referred by the International Refugee Committee to work in its commercial kitchen. The company then uses input from the employees to choose the dishes featured on its menu. These dishes can range from spicy Nepali dumplings to savory Iraqi beef patties. The minimum order begins with five servings, making it ideal for corporate lunches, dinner parties or school events.

The unique food delivery service not only satisfies a growing consumer appetite for global cuisine, but it also helps newly-arrived refugees secure much-needed jobs.
