La Cocina’s Food & Entrepreneurship Conference 2012

Sunday, August 19 & Monday, August 20th

San Francisco, SOMArts (934 Brannan Street between 8th & 9th Streets)


The conference is a place where we can all come together—food enthusiasts and entrepreneurs, policy makers, nonprofit organizers and volunteers, city government officials, and media - to discuss food, community, and entrepreneurship and to celebrate the ways that food creates opportunity.

Themes that we will be discussing this year include promoting diversity and building community spaces through the shared experience of food; creating jobs and developing our economy in a sustainable, sound manner; supporting women and immigrant-run and owned businesses, and leveraging technology to do all of the above.

We won’t let you go hungry—there will be food!  At brunch on Sunday, and lunch and happy hour on Monday, we will give you ample opportunity to sample the delicious food that our participants whip up.
