Watch what happens when Sarah Adler and Mackenzie Barth, co-founders of Spoon University, join us on Bold Blend!
These bold entrepreneurs share the amazing story of Spoon U and how it has grown so much since they started it as college freshmen. Feeling clueless in the kitchen, the two created a peer-to-peer community that provides support for everything food related. Spoon U is the go-to for healthy hacks, restaurant reviews, and creative recipes that feed into every aspect of food-conscious living. Their mission is to make food make sense, that is exactly what they do!
With their ‘secret sauce’ program, they successfully train and empower a network of over 5,000 contributors at over 100 college campuses to write articles, share pics (#SpoonFeed), create video clips, and organize events. Spoon U is more than a food blog, it is also a hub for its writers to delve into deeper issues with lifestyle pieces like this one.
Comprised of dedicated and driven content creators and readers, it should come to no surprise that Spoon U has grown substantially since going live in November 2013, and is quickly becoming the Food Network for Millennials. If you haven’t already, sign up for their newsletter and follow (@SpoonUniversity) this movement that has been redefining the way we relate to food.
