Save the date for Chatham University's Center for Women's Entrepreneurship's upcoming Business & Food Forum! In partnership with the Chatham University Falk School of Sustainability & the Environment, CWE is hosting its annual forum at Chatham University's Eden Hall Campus. This evening event will focus on the intersection of food and business with demonstrations, tastings, and a keynote speaker presentation by Vimala Rajendran. Tours of the next-generation sustainable campus will be available for attendees. 

Vimala Rajendran is a chef and restaurateur who deeply believes that we grow our community by engaging intentionally in the farm to fork process and living our vision of creative resiliency. She proudly states that food is a human right and her business motto is “Vimala cooks, everyone eats.” No one is ever turned away at her restaurant – yet she still makes a profit. Her business, Vimala’s Curryblossom Cafe, prioritizes worker, environmental, and social justice; accessibility through affordability; and sustainability at every level. Her award winning restaurant, founded rather unexpectedly in 2010, pays a living wage. The idea to be a triple bottom line business came naturally to Vimala, given her mission to be sustainable on every level possible.  The three areas they focus on are people, planet and profit.  

Fee : $50, $25 for Non-Chatham Students with valid ID, $10 for Members of the Center
