Empowering People to Use the Power of Agriculture to Tranform lives
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.
We are a 501C3 nonprofit organization founded in Columbus, Ohio that offers educational programming to youth and adults. Our team works with individuals, schools, organizations and aspiring business-owners to provide training in the areas of health & wellness, sustainable agriculture, food processing and business development.
The mission of the George Washington Carver Food Research Institute (GWCFRI) is to elevate the mind, body and spirit of individuals living in resource constrained areas where access to healthy foods and career opportunities may be limited. Our purpose is to address societal issues related to poverty, inadequate education, food scarcity and economic insecurity both locally and around the world.
