Last month our Avis students learned about Black food as part of both joy and resistance, local cookbook author and food justice activist, Bryant Terry (@bryantterry), and were invited to participate in a “Tasty 10 Challenge.”
Sponsored by our very own head of school Nisa Frank, the Tasty 10 Challenge invited students to come up with 10 local Black-owned food businesses. Our winners received cupcakes from one of Nisa’s favorite bakeries, Cupcakin’ (@cupcakinbakeshop), a Black-owned cupcake business in Oakland and Berkeley.
Here are a few of our winning entries; we hope they inspire you to get out and discover your next favorite Black-owned business!
