17 Dec FORBES: Palestinian Refugees In Beirut Crowdfund $60,000 To Buy A Food Truck
“You might remember the 2014 movie Chef, where a disenchanted culinary celeb, played by Jon Favreau, ups and quits his fancy restaurant in Los Angeles. He rebuilds his shattered career, and shaky relationships, by rehabbing an old food truck in Miami and taking it on the road with his son and gorgeous ex-wife (Sofía Vergara).
Thousands of miles away, that flick inspired the women who run Soufra, a catering business based in the Burj el Barajneh refugee camp in southern Beirut, to think expansively about the future of their social enterprise, which is limited by seasonal demand and location.
Next year, thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign that closed today, Soufra can buy its own food truck.”
