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 business leaders, it grew from monthly workshops to a year long program. The education program is part of City Seeds, a Humanim Social Enterprise. Humanim is a non profit organization that is building an inclusive community and economy.
