Social enterprises are businesses owned by nonprofit organizations, that are directly involved in the production and selling of goods and services for the blended purpose of generating income and achieving social, cultural, and environmental aims. A social enterprise is an organization that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and environmental well-being, rather than maximizing profits for external shareholders


Never before have so many people lived for so long: two thirds of those who have ever lived over the age of sixty-five are alive to-day. The Woodland Foundation uses market oriented production and sale of goods and services to pursue a public benefit mission to create programs that provide a happier and healthier lifestyle for seniors

Social entrepreneurs come in all shapes and sizes, but are united in their passion for change, using business to power that change, and a desire to be more self-reliant in creating the change they seek in the community. Simply stated the Woodland Foundation enables the by-product of every-day activities to generate new and incremental resources that can be accrued towards the benefit of retired seniors and the elderly.

The resident preservation team works right on the heels of the restaurant kitchen, canning everything possible. The team is proud to make products that stay true to local traditions, while still creating foods everyone can appreciate, from home cooks to chefs.

Using all-natural ingredients, the handcrafted products are made through tried and true processes, letting the ingredients speak for themselves.

The social enterprise strategy

at Woodlands, will focus on

organic food grown locally and

in our own gardens creating a

sustainable food system.

One, which contributes to a

healthier environment,

improved personal health

and a more resilient local green



Making a healthier retirement

a secure reality
