Event description

Description

Hungry for change? Start the morning with a locally sourced breakfast showcase, meeting and hearing from organizations in the Twin Cities building businesses in the food industry to drive social change and job creation. Discover the deep rooted inequalities found in our current food system and meet the local startups who are committed to using food as a vehicle for social change.

This panel and discussion will feature Jeff Dykstra, Co-Founder/CEO Partners in Food Solutions, Michelle Horovitz, Co-Founder/Executive Director, Appetite for Change, Marcus Owens, CEO/President of NEON, Tricia Nelson, Sales Development and Community Relations, FINNEGANS SBC, and Patsy Noble, Senior Program Director, of Urban Roots coming together to discuss the role of food and business in cultivating social justice. Together they will share the impact of their work, discuss the issues happening within our own community, and showcase how startups can play a critical role in continuing to drive this change.

Find your place at the community table, as we come together to ask questions and bring about new ideas to solve one of the most important social justice issues of our time.

Community breakfast will provided by Breaking Bread cafe, a social enterprise.
