Social entrepreneurs get creative when it comes to improving the way things work. And they don't just do it to make money, they do it for the greater good.
Sustainability advocate and noted restaurateur Liz Lessner will talk social entrepreneurship as part of a Library panel discussion.
Lessner, owner of Betty's Family of Restaurants (Betty's Fine Food & Spirits, the Surly Girl Saloon, Tip Top Kitchen & Cocktails and Dirty Frank's Hot Dog Palace), will be joined by representatives from Fresh Box Catering and Cause Impact to discuss social entrepreneurship and how it's changing business and our lives.
Lessner takes an active role in philanthropic efforts that benefit the neighborhood and communities supporting her restaurants. She also serves on boards and committees involving sustainability and green living issues.
Established in 2009 in partnership with Faith Mission Shelters, Fresh Box Catering offers shelter residents a competitive work environment and training so that they can find work in the food service industry.
For over a decade, Cause Impact , a social purpose business located in Columbus, has helped organizations identify, evaluate and optimize their social impact in innovative and sustainable ways.
