WE Power Food
Helping women entrepreneurs identify issues and develop innovative solutions
WHO WE ARE
Piedmont Food Processing Center first convened a round table discussion with a group of women in food businesses, entrepreneurship programs and public office in the fall of 2017. The group was asked two questions: What challenges to business and personal success are women food entrepreneurs facing and which of these challenges are unique to women food entrepreneurs and why?
The collective, now known as WE Power Food, has since identified two goal areas:
1. Develop targeted resources and support networks to benefit women in food business
2. Foster changes in the business environment to create a more equitable and safe space where all women in food business can succeed and flourish
