So what’s the Awesome Foundation?

The Awesome Foundation originally started in Boston in 2009 and has since grown to be a worldwide network of people with nearly 20 chapters in cities across the world, including San Francisco, NYC, Ottawa, London, Berlin, Sydney, Zurich, among others. Projects funded have included a giant hammock in Boston, tram sessions in Melbourne, and a fab lab in Washington DC. Most chapters are geographically focused. But food is topic focused.
