Businesses That Give Back: I Knead Love with Maya-Camille Broussard

One of the things that stayed with me the most after finishing In the Company of Women was seeing just how many of the business owners I interviewed use their companies to give back. From painters and poets to fashion houses and textile designers, almost everyone found a way to use their work to support and uplift the communities around them. So this year we’re starting a special series highlighting businesses and individuals that have found a way to connect their passion for giving back with the work they do every day.

Today we’re starting with Maya-Camille Broussard, a talented and prolific baker, designer, and creative entrepreneur from Chicago, Illinois. We first met Maya in 2016 when she talked with us about all the things she’d learned about life and work from baking. Her project, Justice of the Pies (which you can order online or find in markets around Chicago), was a huge success and she’s shared those lessons from the culinary world in a must-see TED talk from 2016. Getting to know Maya-Camille and her work has been an absolute joy and I’ve been so excited to see her latest project come to life: the I KNEAD LOVE Workshop.
I KNEAD LOVE is a culinary workshop for 6th-8th graders from at-risk, low-income communities. In this one-day intensive class, Maya-Camille teaches young adults kitchen skills, how to be creative, and how to sustain themselves (and their families) nutritionally. I wanted to know more about how Maya-Camille came up with this project, how she funded it, and how it could inspire people reading to start similar projects that support their local community. So I reached out to my better half, Julia Turshen, and she sat down with Maya-Camille to talk about how I KNEAD LOVE came to be, how it was structured, and what advice Maya-Camille has for people who’d like to connect their businesses to more community-based work. Read on for the full interview and stay tuned for two great recipes from the workshop this afternoon! (Quiche at 11am and Apple Pie at noon!) xo, Grace
*P.S.: Julia and Maya-Camille are part of a great new site that launched last week, E.A.T.T. — a resource that highlights marginalized voices in the food community.
