We had the good fortune of connecting with Ava Truckey and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ava, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
As a business owner, I feel responsible and passionate about the ways in which I give back to my community: the voices I amplify, with whom I collaborate, and who I support. I source ingredients locally when possible, gift boxes from the bakery each week, and I pay other local creatives full price for their time/product. At the basic level, this is what folks – especially (white) business owners – should be doing. I feel that baked goods are love, but so is putting your money where your mouth is.
