Avalon is partnering with the Detroit Food Academy during the month of February to Share the Love! Detroit Food Academy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that works to inspire young Detroiters (ages 10-24) through culinary arts and food entrepreneurship. From cooking delicious healthy meals for friends and family to facilitating complex conversations with community to developing artisan food projects from scratch to market, students learn by transforming their ideas into reality. Through this process, they grow as holistic leaders who are healthy, connected, and powerful to affect change in our communities and beyond.
Connecting youth to mentors and leaders throughout the food system is a powerful way to share skills, stories, and networks of support. Since, their first summer in 2011, Avalon International Breads has partnered with DFA as a mentor site, offering youth hands-on learning at the bakery. Through field trips and farmers market stands, young Detroiters have loved learning from the Avalon team!
