document Crowdfunding
Summary
Brooklyn based Spelt Right Foods, with roots in the State of Maine, has been crowned the Grand Prize winner in FreshDirect's Next Big Food Thing contest, a crowdfunding contest launched by FreshDirect in collaboration with RocketHub to "find the next food idea, product or innovation that could change the food world."
Description
Submitted by Beth George of New York, NY, founder of Spelt Right Foods, the project is focused on raising funds for continued studies on the growth of spelt, a highly nutritious ancient grain not commonly cultivated due to its tough hull. Through funds raised on the RocketHub crowdfunding platform, Spelt Right plans to continue its collaboration with the University of Maine extension program for additional studies on the cultivation of spelt, particularly in regard to underutilized farmland in the northeast. These studies would be available to farms seeking a working knowledge of growing this alternative and viable crop.
