Black History Month Challenge!

InstagramNews March 14, 2023

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!
