2018 Food Innovation Fellowship Graduation Showcase

April 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join the Food Well Alliance and the Center for Civic Innovation as we recognize a group of incredible food entrepreneurs with ideas, products, and services that will make Atlanta’s food system stronger, and in turn, build healthier communities.

From farmers to community advocates, these entrepreneurs are transforming urban neighborhoods through their leadership and commitment to growing healthy, local food to ensure that all Atlantans are food secure, and have equitable food access.

This graduation will feature three-minute pitches from each leader, focused on the problem they are solving, their unique product or service solution, and their long-term growth strategy. All of these entrepreneurs are recent Food Well Alliance grant recipients.
