From One-for-One Meals to Self-Sustaining Farms

 - Jun 6, 2013
From one-for-one meals that use the ever popular TOMS Shoes model to self-sustaining farms that attempt to increase crop productivity, these hunger-tackling social enterprises range from product to service and to the in between.

For instance, One Acre Fund is a social business that was created in 2006 by a former MBA student at Kellogg Schol of management and has a market-driven approach. Others, perhaps like the one-for-one model, are less sustainable in the long run and operate more on a donation-driven scheme. These hunger-tackling social enterprises, then, take what was once seemingly exclusively a cause for governments, charities and aid to take on and bring in a hybrid model to the way it runs its practice.
