To inspire the next generation of talent into the career-making possibilities of our food and beverage industry, FaB hosts its Farm to Factory to Fork High School Career Discovery.
With nearly half of our existing working population due to retire, ensuring there is a pipeline of talent for the food and beverage industry is more important than ever. Additionally, talent is required if we are to double our food production by the year 2050 to feed a global population of 9.7 billion.
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 Our Global Kitchen Exhibition, presented by the American Museum of Natural History.

Our 2015 Farm-Factory-Fork, held in April 2015, was attended by 300 students who expressed an interest in the food and beverage industry from Milwaukee's public Vincent High School, Elkhorn Area High School and Campbellsport High School. Students visited with 25 industry employers, participated in a panel discussion and Q&A with industry professionals, learned what makes a "good job," and enjoyed a keynote presentation from Maya Warren, UW-Madison food science Ph.D student and winner of The Amazing Race.
In 2014, FaB launched its first Farm-Factory-Fork High School Career Exploration event at Vincent High School. A Milwaukee Public School, Vincent High School has nearly 1,300 students, freshmen to seniors, who are learning science, technology, engineering and math through the lens of food. With 90 acres of farm land, aquaponics operations, a greenhouse, bee hives and a new food science program starting, Vincent is well-poised to both educate and interest students in a food or beverage career. All 1,300 students visited with 25 industry employers during the Career Exploration.
