I was racking my memory to reference this idea to a student – I found what the name of the company was called after a good half hour! Posting it on here in case I forget again.

Telemadre is a social model where mothers whose children have grown up and left cook for young professionals and students for a fee. Through this, mothers can continue to cook as much as they would if their children were still at home, but they can package the food instead and sell it to local young people who aren’t as good at cooking. The idea is a community building project of sorts and this could classify it as social design.

Here’s an academic paper on it.
