Week of August 3

August 4, 2015 8:00 PM

Taste of FEED

  • Saturday, August 8 from 4:30 to 7:00pm
  • FEED Kitchens - 1219 North Sherman Avenue

This event has a family focus. Kids activities will include hands-on pottery demonstrations, decorate-your-own-sugar-cookie instruction, scavenger hunts in the Kitchens, a fire engine from our own Station Ten, and more. The Mami Wata West African Drummers will get everyone moving.


Taste of FEED

Tour the Kitchen to meet FEED users and sample their wares. Food carts will be offering tasty suppers for purchase. Adults can sign up to win prizes donated by local businesses and kids can win school supplies just for participating in the activities. It's a party you won't want to miss.


Edible Startup Conference

The Edible Startup Conference is a three day conference to provide you with the knowledge and connections to help launch a food business.

The conference begins on Monday with the Summit and then continues on Tuesday and Wednesday with the Edible Extended - 2 days of in-depth, detailed sessions on August 24-26.

Hear from successful food entrepreneurs, connect with industry, government, and non-profit resources, and bring questions for some great Q & A.

The summit is focused on starting businesses that will sell food in retail and wholesale channels. This event is not for restaurateurs. Our mission is to help you on the path to become the next Yumbutter, Potter's Crackers, or Gail Ambrosius Chocolatier.
