Revolution Foods and the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund Bring Together Food Leaders
DateAugust 9, 2011
The Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund hosted a convening of 24 dynamic leaders and thinkers on issues related to healthy food access and education. Led by Kristin Groos Richmond and Kirsten Tobey, Ashoka fellows and co-founders of the innovative social enterprise Revolution Foods, the discussion illuminated ideas about using entrepreneurship and creative financing to build a scalable social venture in the school food arena. The conversation was a springboard for new partnerships and brainstorms, and it empowered all in the room to think about the school food space from different perspectives.
