Do you want to take a private bus tour around Detroit exploring the people, places, and products that are transforming the city?  We will visit the markets, restaurants, juice bars, jam makers and lunch diners that are making Detroit a celebrated and controversial food city.  We promise a great day of touring and an incredible day of food while talking to local experts about what it takes to start a food business, to scaling the business to when does revitalization become gentrification.

Devita Davison, a native of Detroit and granddaughter of a preacher, lived almost 19 years in New York before moving back to her hometown of Detroit in 2012. Her words are not just letters strung together; they are vessels for love and fight, heart ache, wisdom, and profound joy. To say she wears her heart on her sleeve is an understatement; whether decrying injustices in the food system or expounding on the beauty of a ripe strawberry in summer, her passion for food justice is palpable. Devita Davison is the Director of Marketing & Communications at FoodLab Detroit, a nonprofit organization that works to provide entrepreneurs with technical assistance, workshops, resources and the skills they need to start and grow a strong values-based food business. FoodLab is committed to serving low-resourced entrepreneurs of color and sees good food entrepreneurship as a way to build power and resilience for traditionally marginalized people and communities and promote environmental sustainability through business prac, FoodLab
