Applications for the 2019 Food Innovation Fellowship closed on August 31, 2018.

In 2016, Food Well Alliance launched a partnership with the Center for Civic Innovation to support entrepreneurial efforts that advance the strength of our urban food and farming system— this includes the way we grow it, receive it, know about it, and consume it. Through this partnership, Center for Civic Innovation reserves a select number of seats in its Civic Innovation Fellowship for leaders that are focused specifically on local food. 

Known as Food Innovation Fellows, these entrepreneurs go through the same six-month leadership and entrepreneurship program as their Civic Innovation Fellow peers. Fellows receive training, mentoring, and seed capital to measure and test the effectiveness of their ideas. The goal of this program is to find ideas that can reduce inequality around food access and to scale community-driven solutions that work. Food Innovation Fellows receive additional opportunities for learning and growth through Food Well Alliance, joining a network of hundreds of urban growers, local food organizations and advocates from across metro Atlanta.

Meet some of our past Food Innovation Fellows and watch a video about their experience.
