The goal is to get an inside look at local businesses for community members interested in starting a food business or working for one. Stay tuned for event details.
Resource Fair participants showed interest in local food business tours. The Community Engagement working group will be coordinating the tours. If you know of any local restaurants, processing companies, farmers markets, or bakeries that would be open to giving a tour, please let us know.
What a success! We had over 80 people attend the FIN Resource Fair on April 29. We had over a dozen service providers tabling and several inspiring speakers, whose stories you can read in this month and July's spotlights. Check out the photo album that Community Advocate Sheelan Shamdeen put together.We heard a lot of great feedback and are excited to say that there are many new events in the works for the second half of 2016. We will be coordinating workshops among the FIN providers and organizing field trips to local businesses and farmer’s markets. Stay tuned for more!
