At Dine For Good, we’ve been working pull together a team of advisors from across the community who are working on innovative projects and/or at organizations focused on food access, entrepreneurship, and emergency relief for those Lexingtonians most in need, to help us drive real impact.
We also need to put our money where our mouth is, so we’ve been focused on building a team that reflects the diversity of our community, which is admittedly a work in progress. If you’re interested in joining our committee, please contact us to see if there is a fit.
Working with the advisory team, together we’ll decide where funding raised for our Community Impact Fund gets invested, with first priority given to those advisors and organizations working on the front lines with us to make real, equitable change in the community.
