What we're about

This group was created for entrepreneurs, small business owners and non-profit managers who work within the food industry. We want to create a community of people who are passionate about the industry, including but not limited to sustainable, healthy and locally-focused food.

Members can feel free to share their thoughts, ideas, events, and how they are connected to the food industry. We want to learn more about what you do as well as inform you of upcoming events.

This meetup is sponsored by Craveity Marketing. Craveity hosts events that revolve around both the sustainable food industry as well as digital marketing. Our main goal is that these events are educational and can help food entrepreneurs.
