A friend of mine asked me today if I know of any US projects/businesses that focus on food, nutrition, and/or education and work with Bottom of the Pyramid children/families. The key features here are 1) “US-based” or “domestic,” and 2) “businesses” – it can be non-profit but it needs to be running as a business.

I was stumped. I can think of many organizations that fit these criteria, but they’re all international. I apparently know more about development in the rest of the world than in my own country.

So I’m opening up this challenge to you all. Can you think of any US-based organizations that fit the above profile?
