Students from diverse backgrounds and majors will collaborate to solve a challenging case focused on highlighting the cultural backgrounds of food. The winning solution will be implemented in the development of Oakland Bloom's business. Industry professionals and graduate students will be on hand during the event to mentor teams before they present.
Oakland Bloom provides education training and hands-on support for aspiring chef entrepreneurs from refugee, immigrant and low-income communities who seek to start their own food businesses.
