Description

Dear Friends and Family,

Like me, you are a Detroit Lover. We share values for a healthy, just, Detroit with access to healthy food and economic opportunity for Detroiters. Please join me and some of my other favorite Detroit Lovers for a Tasting and Fundraiser for Detroit Food Academy on Tuesday, May 14th 5-7 p.m. I have been a fan of DFA and the work of Noam Kimelman and Jen Rusciano since the organization’s inception in 2011. Over the course of the last year, my respect has turned into awe, as I have had the privilege of serving on the DFA Board of Directors.

Young people in Detroit face many challenges, including access to and education about healthy food and economic opportunities. Detroit Food Academy addresses both of these critical and inter-related issues through their innovative programming, which will reach over 2,500 students this year at 18 different schools and community centers. Participants range from students at Cody, Osborn, and Hamtramck High Schools to middle-schoolers at Focus Hope, Boggs School, Racquet up, and Earhart Elementary to young adults at Ruth Ellis Center and young mothers at Brilliant Detroit.

Most importantly, perhaps, DFA develops leadership that extends far beyond the kitchen or the classroom. Some students will become entrepreneurs, and others will work in the ever-expanding food industry, which has an increasingly high (and unfilled) demand for skilled, passionate employees. Whatever path DFA graduates take, in any industry, the training and community of DFA will help launch and support them as they move through high school and beyond.

Please join me for this fundraiser and friendraiser at Avalon Café and Bakery at 1049 Woodward Ave in Downtown Detroit. It will be an evening of celebration with delicious foods and select organic and sustainable wines. Feel free to bring others who support a healthy and just Detroit.

I look forward to seeing you on May 14th and joining together to celebrate and support one of the gems of Detroit.


With Joy,

Jackie Victor
