Great food business ideas remain locked inside people who don’t have access to the resources to bring them to market.


Why do we offer Business Builder Scholarships?

Starting a food business is expensive. We want people who have been marginalized and lack capital to have the opportunity to start businesses with the Can-Do Kitchen. Scholarship funds help aspiring entrepreneurs launch food businesses with our ongoing incubation support. We are currently accepting scholarship applications. Please see the downloadable PDF application and info sheet to the right. You can mail, email, or drop off your application. 

Please note: This scholarship is for people who have low household income and low net assets and have a marginalized identity such as racial, disability, LGBTQ+, refugee, or immigrant identity. Please see the info sheet for more information.

Translated applications & info sheets available upon request. Please email
