Started by friends and food professionals Leigh Belanger and Maggie Battista as a network and event series for creative businesswomen in 2018, The Fresh Collective brings women together - IRL and online - to collaborate, support, and shine light on one another’s work.

After selling out many events in Boston with talented women including a James Beard Award-winning chef, a New York Times columnist, and America’s Test Kitchen on-air talent, Maggie and Leigh launched the Made Fresh podcast in early 2019 to offer honest, thought-provoking, and joyful stories to inspire a spirit of curiosity and exploration in work and in life.
