As the price of food, fuel and electricity rises, more and more people need greater support. Alice Mahar is an environmental and food justice advocate from Melbourne who is one part chef, three parts social entrepreneur.
Join us with Alice, who has a passion for cooking coupled with a desire to ensure no person goes hungry. This led her to create The Corner Store Network, a social enterprise based in Oakleigh working to preserve the future through the provision of food, economic and environmental justice.
The Corner Store Network is on a mission to put people and planet before profit by running several initiatives, addressing global challenges with local solutions.
In 2017, Alice was selected as one of Australia’s leading young social entrepreneurs through the Foundation for Young Australians. This was just the beginning for Alice. She went on to receive the award as an Obama Leader: Asia Pacific, a Climate Reality Leader, and has used the medium of food to strive for social justice and equality while providing opportunities for women.
Alice fundamentally believes in the power of community to solve problems from a ground up approach and is passionate about feeding a growing global population in an environmentally regenerative way, while ensuring that no person is left behind. Book now to network with your peers and learn more about food security and Alice's personal journey as a young leader.
