"Regenerate Detroit" Benefit Dinner

Tickets are now available for our THIRD "Regenerate Detroit" dinner benefiting the Detroit Food Academy. The dinner series, started by Detroit Lions Alum DeAndre Levy and Chef James Rigato of Mabel Gray in 2016, has already raised over $30,000 to fund a full scholarship for Detroit Food Academy's Brandon Johnson, 21, to attend Schoolcraft College.

Through these dinners, Levy and Rigato aim to provide resources and guidance for Detroit youth interested in revitalizing Detroit and its culinary scene.  The next dinner will feature chef Shawn Loving, along with chef Rigato, as a throwback to the Loving Spoonful, chef Shawn Loving's former restaurant. The throwback dinner will give guests a chance to revisit the beloved upscale comfort food once served at chef Shawn Loving's Farmington Hills restaurant for the first time since it closed. Loving is now an instructor at Schoolcraft College. The evening will begin on Monday, October 16 at Joebar in Hazel Park with a cocktail reception at 6 p.m. and dinner at 7 p.m. Cost is $100 per person which includes tax, gratuity and wine pairings. All money raised will directly fund a scholarship for a student from Detroit Food Academy to attend culinary school.

Founded in 2011, Detroit Food Academy facilitates year-round programming in youth leadership, culinary arts, and entrepreneurship. Students learn both in the classroom and on the ground by using their new skills to transform their entrepreneurial culinary ideas into reality. Many students have a desire to continue what they learn in higher education, yet do not have the means to pursue their education. Funds from Regenerate Detroit will support these young Detroiters in reaching their educational and professional goals.

About Detroit Food Academy:
Detroit Food Academy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that works with local educators, chefs, and business owners to inspire young Detroiters (ages 13-24) through self-directed entrepreneurial experiences rooted in food -- experiences which open doors, create connections, and spark confidence. From cooking delicious healthy meals for friends and family to facilitating complex conversations with community to develop artisan food projects from scratch to market, students learn by transforming their ideas into reality. Through this process, they grow as holistic leaders who are healthy, connected, and powerful to affect change within and beyond the local food system.
