School of Food

School of Food is made just for you.

School of Food is not a one size fits all business training program; it’s made to order based on your needs. Our personalized curriculum takes current and future food biz owners on a journey that begins with the basics (defining your mission, crafting the perfect pitch), moves into the nitty-gritty (financial forecasting, health regulations) and ends with all the fun stuff you need to know when going to market (distribution, social media marketing). Sign-up today so you can bring home the bacon tomorrow.

We’re growing our network and it includes you.

School of Food started in Baltimore to help local food entrepreneurs take time away from their everyday and focus on scaling their business idea. Through workshops led by industry experts and business leaders, it grew from monthly workshops to a year long program. Watch our videos to learn more about our programming! Want to join us in growing our network as a partner or sponsor? School of Food is part of City Seeds, a Humanim Social Enterprise. Humanim is a non profit organization that is building an inclusive community and economy.
