Perhaps the name of this Social Business top list should be changed from "social entrepreneurs who cook" to "social entrepreneurs who enjoy cooking." Let us hope that many entrepreneurs themselves cook -- or at least have tried cooking -- even though we've heard about social entrepreneurs who have no time to eat, let alone cook. Or even further perks at start-up companies like Warby Parker that include prepared food.
These social entrepreneurs who cook, however, cite cooking as a way to unwind outside of their daily routine at work. Kevin Moshayed, for instance, the founder of Ark Collective, says he likes to "make a perfect bite" after every work day. And Leigh Morlock, the creative director and co-founder of Push Pull, takes raw cooking lessons.
