Event description

Description

Co-founder of Local Crate, Frank Jackman, an alumnus of the College of Business, started his marketing career in the food industry where he met executive-chef and business partner Mike Stalbaum. As they discovered the meal kit trend on the rise, they launched Local Crate with a unique and fresh twist.

Frank will present in a TedTalk Style on how his company is creating a food revolution by providing consumers with local, fresh, high-quality ingredients to help you eat healthier, less processed foods. This locally-sourced meal-delivery service provides fresh and seasonal meal kits. Another stand out feature is the Award-winning chefs that create an easy-to-make recipe. All ingredients are locally sourced by our growing region while reducing food and packaging waste.

Local Crate is committed to connecting people to real food and providing a unique culinary experience.

Join us after the lecture for a reception at Hearth Lounge in the Centennial Student Union.
