Gail Simmons Twitter Chat

One week from today, Monday, February 24th from 1:00-2:00 pm ET, Babson Entrepreneur in Residence Gail Simmons and Food Sol at Babson will join Center for Science in the Public Interest for a nationwide Twitter chat on food entrepreneurship.

Center for Science in the Public Interest is the national organization behind Food Day, a day of food-system awareness and inquiry that Babson has celebrated since its inception in 2011.  Last year, founder and Executive Director Michael Jacobson chose to visit Babson out of thousands of campus Food Day events.

The Food Day team in DC is already making buzz for Food Day 2014. Each month on the 24th, they will host a Twitter chat to build momentum toward the big day on October 24th.  The first, on January 24th, was with Jamie Oliver Foundation.


This month, Gail Simmons and Food Sol at Babson join them on the topic of trailblazers, innovators and entrepreneurs in food – with an extra emphasis on women in food.

Chefs Ana Sortun of Oleana and Sarma, Jody Adams of Rialto, Kristen Kish of Menton, and food writer Louisa Kasdon are already on board to join us.   You should too!
