The first Rhode Island Tabletop food event was a huge success thanks to our partners at Hope & Main, Relish Rhody and Farm Fresh RI. There were over 100 buyers and 26 supplier partners, all being local emerging food businesses with the capacity to meet the needs of anchor institutions. A big thank you to our suppliers and buyers that attended the event.
"Today was a spectacular example of the power of collaboration. This is indeed a small but mighty group that is setting our State on course for a new food future-- a future that is more vibrant because it is more diverse and inclusive. It takes the work of many hands to help small businesses to reach their goals and to sustain success. Those hands belong to all of you! Thank you."
