On Kickstarter: Detroit Youth Food Brigade
This week on Kickstarter, we found another food-focused project, the Detroit Youth Food Brigade. A collaboration between local high school students, food-based business, and neighborhood markets, DYFB takes a city-wide approach to improve access to healthy food through neighborhood markets, and students, who had to apply for the program, get valuable work experience. The result?
Students gain hands-on skills and expertise in entrepreneurship and business management, marketing and sales, cooking and nutrition, sourcing, and logistics. Local food businesses gain additional product outlets, a brand boost, and valuable staff support. Neighborhood markets gain increased support and product diversity, greater economic impact, and improved food security in their surrounding areas.
