FaB's Farm-Factory-Fork
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.


2017 FARM-FACTORY-FORK

March 24, 2017 marked FaB’s Third Farm to Factory to Fork High School Career Discovery and this was our best yet. Thank you to all the employers, educators and trainers, industry professionals, students and high school chaperones and coordinators, and a special thank you to the Milwaukee Public Museum for opening its doors and Global Kitchen Exhibition to us. It was a FaBulous and one-of-a-kind career discovery!

Our 2017 Discovery shared an experience between students and our food and beverage makers, producers and educators, offering an experience dedicated to what we eat and drink, how it gets to our tables, and who makes it happen. It also offered students personal contact with industry professionals and the opportunity to meet Wisconsin food and beverage companies as they learned about the lifelong career opportunities and where to receive advanced training. 

 











 

2015 FARM-FACTORY-FORK

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.










 

2014 FARM-FACTORY-FORK

In 2014, FaB launched its first Farm-Factory-Fork High School Career Exploration event at Vincent High School.
