Inspire the next generation of talent into the career-making possibilities of our food and beverage industry! Participate in the FaB Farm to Factory to Fork Career Discovery. This day shares an experience between students and our food and beverage makers, producers and educators, with and at the Milwaukee Public Museum. This is our third FFF Career Discovery and we’re pleased to be hosting the day with MPM and in conjunction with the Global Kitchen Exhibitionpresented by the American Museum of Natural History

Selected high schools and students, employers and educators will share a day immersed in an experience that is dedicated to what we eat and drink, how it gets to our tables, and who makes it happen. They will learn about the life-long career opportunities and where to receive advanced training. 

Students will move through three areas of career discovery, spending one hour in each area:

  • Global Kitchen Exhibition – an amazing look at our food systems
  • FaB Employer Discovery Galleria – an interactive introduction to who brings us our food and how
  • FaB Career Discovery Keynote Presentation and Panel – a personal look into career experiences
