George Washington Carver Food Research Institute (GWCFR) is dedicated to uplifting the lives of individuals through agricultural science, technology, entrepreneurship, art and mathematic (STEAM) education. We share the collective insights of experienced food professionals to advance farming techniques, food production and business acumen with the goal of fueling economic and personal growth.

Our Services


Our work aims to advance equitable, high-quality learning of the areas concerning agricultural STEAM for people of all ages around the globe.


By using methods such as impact analysis, technology commercialization, and university and private-sector partnership program, we can teach individuals how to develop and sustain agriculture-based
business enterprises.

Health and Wellness

We offer courses in yoga, meditation, gardening techniques and culinary arts that focus on the nutritional quality and safety of foods. Our team analyzes and evaluates our clients’ programs and policies to help improve public health and wellness through better nutrition. This is to ensure that healthy foods are available, accessible, and affordable.

Domestic and International Economic Development

Our team strives to help developing countries and communities address problems in education, health, food security, governance, and economic development. We can do this by gathering highly skilled professionals to offer advisory and training services in all aspects of food production. Their expertise may be in areas such as business, finance, food science, engineering, food safety, packaging design, and law.

Minority Business Enterprise Efficacy Research

Companies that are owned, operated, and controlled by ethnic minorities may be influential in teaching the importance of food production. That is why we focus a significant amount of our time researching the possibilities of partnering with minority business enterprises to encourage the programs on
agricultural STEAM.
