Ebony Irving opened Aundreyes’ Kitchen Catering out of her home in 2017. In 2020, Ebony took the business full-time after losing employment due to pandemic-related layoffs. Aundreyes’ expansion into a food truck, supported by a loan from Michigan Good Food Fund lending partner Michigan Women Forward, will allow Ebony to broaden her service area, significantly increase revenue, and grow from catering small parties to attending large festivals and events.
