FROM OUR TABLE TO YOURS
Founded in 2020 by twin siblings, Martina and Marcellus Barksdale, SoulFeast Week is a continuation of efforts to highlight and support black culinary and agriculture in Central Kentucky.
In the midst of battling a global health crisis and fighting racial injustices, the Barksdale twins launched the #19DaysOfBlackBiz challenge in June of 2020 as a communal effort to stimulate black businesses across Central Kentucky.
The first annual SoulFeast Week will debut exactly one year after these efforts as a commemoration and celebration of Juneteenth.
Our mission is to facilitate and highlight black culinary experiences as a means to educate, stimulate, and embrace black businesses one bite at a time.
