Food Combi

Entrepreneurship In Action

Food Combi is the project initiated by Dr. John Alver Dobson of using a food truck to drive community engagement.  It is used by Re-entry Entrepreneurship students and Clark University students to build up their skills with starting and running a small business.  The students are formerly incarcerated individuals who are transitioning back into society.  The Food Combi allows them to rebuild themselves, reconnect with their community, and become productive members of society. 

 

Please contact us if you would like more information or stop by at one of our events.
