Celebrating Innovation at Social Enterprise FoodFest

Friday, October 11, 2019TOPICS: Changemaker

The best way to learn about social enterprise on a college campus is to attend the Social Enterprise Foodfest. There’s free food and everyone leaves with a smile and a full stomach.   On Thursday, Oct. 10 in front of the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice (the Garden of the Sky), USD’s Center for Peace and Commerce hosted an event featuring food and beverage-focused companies who’ve started their business and have an innovative twist.   Whether it’s cutting down on food waste, making healthier food or providing nourishment to those who experience food insecurity, the aim of the Social Enterprise Foodfest celebrated local partners and innovators around food in San Diego and invited the USD community to the table.    —Video by Thomas Sanbeg
