Food Business Incubator Program

The Cambridge Community Development Department is excited to launch a new component of our Food Business Incubator Program, the Food Business Workshop Series.

 

The Food Business Workshop Series offers professional training tailored to the needs of new or early stage food business owners and offers expertise on timely topics in the modern food business landscape. Registration is required for workshop participation, and class size is limited. Priority will be given to Cambridge residents and businesses, participants in the Cambridge Food Truck Program, and women and minority-owned food businesses. All workshops are free to participants.
