Scholarship Available for Food Loves Tech Expo in NYC

Apply by Wednesday, Sept 19 to the Vermont Fresh Network conference program


Applications are now open for the third round of Vermont Fresh Network (VFN) Conference Program grants. This round of funding supports participation in the Food Loves Tech expo, including access to all panel discussions and “The Future of the Cocktail” opening reception. The expo takes place November 2nd & 3rd in New York City.   


Food Loves Tech describes itself as "a first-of-its-kind education by entertainment innovation expo, focusing on how technology shapes and changes the way we cultivate and consume food." The technology discussed goes beyond digital to include innovations in the food system around sustainability, consumer education, alternative ingredients, waste management, and the overall impact of what we eat.  


The VFN Conference Program helps chefs, farmers, food producers, beverage makers, and others working in our local food system attend important conferences beyond our region. Details can be found on the Conference Program page, along with background on this initiative. Applications are due Wednesday, Sept 19th.
