The Los Angeles Food Policy Council is excited to present a special Network Meeting in collaboration with HUB LA on Thursday, April 17 to explore the intersection between food policy and social entrepreneurship. How does food policy open up opportunities for socially responsible enterprise? How does the innovation of entrepreneurs spur good food policy change? We'll highlight examples of current and pending policies such as the Cottage Food Act and the Street Food Vending campaign and discuss new opportunities surrounding those initiatives. Join the discussion and connect with like-minded individuals. Please RSVP by .
