“Since the pandemic hit, one study found nearly 40% of active-duty service members have food insecurity; for minority members, it’s more than half.”
Military Families Magazine recently highlighted the work of Dog Tag Bakery:
Claire Witko, Dog Tag’s director of programs, says the fellowship is designed to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset. “That includes,” she says, “understanding that failure is an unavoidable part of forging a successful path forward, and that learning how to rebound and find creative solutions to challenges are essential skills.”
The aim of the program, however, isn’t to groom the next Elon Musk or Oprah Winfrey.
“We don’t define success,” Witko said. “Our fellows discover their own definition of success. It’s about finding purpose and voice.”
A revised Taste and Shop Georgetown will run October 5 through 25 with take-out, delivery and outdoor dining specials at restaurants and streateries including Dog Tag Bakery. Learn more.
