Food Sol Community Table

Community Table

Babson, Boston / Cambridge, New York, Vermont

Community Table is a place for food entre­pre­neurs, students of food across disci­plines, and curious eaters to connect and exchange ideas. The design is always one table, one conver­sation, with the collect­ive deter­mining the content.

Participants have reported finding partners, expanding networks, and reaching retail all as direct results of attending Community Table. Come when you can, bring your lunch or a snack if you wish. For details on future Tables, subscribe to Food Sol. ​
