The 275 Food Fellowship Program

The 275 Food Fellowship functions to increase career and ownership opportunities for women chefs and emerging chefs of color through a curriculum of professional mentorship. The program provides the tools, resources and networks required for business success.

THE WOMENS CHEF INITIATIVE PRESENTED BY CHEF KELLY ENGLISH

We believe there is a pressing need for more women to be in higher ranking positions in the restaurant industry. To address this problem, Chef Kelly English and 275 Food have partnered with Chef Edward Lee in Louisville to launch a six month mentorship in Memphis for high achieving women chefs. The initiative will operate under the banner of the 275 Food Fellowship Program.

275 Container Restaurant Initiative

In partnership with the Memphis Grizzlies, 275 Food is building a series of farm-to-fork container restaurants in neighborhoods where healthy food options are limited. Embedded in the concept is a workforce development program designed to place emerging chefs and food entrepreneurs of color in leadership positions, running their own kitchens.
