Food Sol Community Table

Community Table

For eaters and entrepreneurs to connect, share, and learn.
One table. One conversation.

Food Sol's Community Table is a consistent habitat to share generative conversations, give and take resources, meet food professionals and food enthusiasts, and “cook” great ideas. It's hosted in three locations (albeit virtually right now): Babson College, Boston, and New York.

Come when you can, leave when you need to. Bring food if you'd like!

Community Table at Babson College

Community Table at Babson is held virtually on the second Tuesday of each month during the semester.

This semester, we're thrilled to partner with Louisa Kasdon, founder and CEO of Let’s Talk About Food.
