If you have been paying attention to the creative exploration we have been working on for the past year, you know we have looked across several business models, to find a business that will not only create a revenue stream but will also serve as an educational model to help ex-felons see the power of the creative process to support them in creating new lives after incarceration.
We have decided to launch Conscious Eats first, for several reasons. First, food is love. Second, we believe a social enterprise based on food has the greatest potential to create sustainable revenue. These two reasons are the drivers of our over arching strategy to create livelihoods for ex-felons.
For the past year, we have been working to create a business model that is grounded in the 6 pillars of character, as well as epitomizes our belief in the collaborative creative process.
As we work to create this social enterprise several over arching principles will drive it.
Are the products and services we are creating -
• honoring to us, our community and our environment?
• representative of a healthy balanced approach to living?
• based on the principles of sustainability?
Is the organization and processes we create -
• fostering an ethical approach to business?
• creating a safe and respectful workplace?
• utilizing resources with a sacred respect?
We believe the organization we are creating will be a ground breaking approach to solving the re-entry problem our community faces. We are partnering with several other non-profits to establish an approach that is grounded in best practices and yet is looking innovatively at solving old problems.
Over the next several months, we will be testing concepts, processes and creating a pile of delicious food! Look for an invitation to join us at the table in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, choose your food consciously!!
