Rachel Greenberger

Senior Fellow in Social Innovation

Rachel Greenberger’s career in food was seeded at the Institute for Social Innovation. In 2011, she and Cheryl Kiser co-founded and launched Food Sol, a nationally recognized first-of-its-kind program centered around gatherings of food entrepreneurs, industry leaders, and students, which gave thousands of people direct access to an active and specialized network. For eight and a half years, she directed it, and for four, taught food entrepreneurship in the graduate school. Her writing on food has appeared in Stanford Social Innovation Review, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, and the Boston Globe. 

In 2020, Rachel joined her husband's company Food.Stories.Travel. (her three favorite things), which creates deep experiences of place and heritage through food. She serves on the Board of Directors to the Boston Public Market Association and is a 2020 Eisenhower Fellow in the USA program. Eisenhower Fellowships are awarded to ascendant leaders committed to creating a more peaceful, prosperous, and just world.
