Savor the Possibilities: Real Estate and the Evolving Food Landscape

November 29, 2023 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Join us for an exclusive and captivating morning as we hear from industry leaders Kim Stein (KLNB), Matthew Robinson (MRP), and Ben Friedman (Son Of A Fish) who will shed light on the evolving trends, challenges, and successes at the intersection of real estate and the food industry. Learn how developments that creatively incorporate food help to activate underutilized spaces and add value to buildings, breathing life into our urban fabric. To get a full picture of how this can be accomplished, hear from a leading developer, broker, and food operator to understand the full process and its flavorful impact. Discover how culinary initiatives can rejuvenate communities, foster engagement, and contribute to the vibrant growth of our cities. In addition, gain valuable insights into the impactful and important role that the Federation plays in the Greater Washington Jewish community.
