We celebrate Martin Luther King Day to promote equal rights for all Americans, regardless of their background.  As we, the people of American society, continue to strive toward the elimination of white supremacy, racial segregation, racism, we remain inspired by the courageous,
non-violent efforts of Martin Luther King, Jr.

By commemorating MLK Day in our Ypsi Food Co-op we demonstrate our support of the current efforts of Black Lives Matter, and we reiterate our recognition of the importance of nurturing diversity in our community.
We dedicate our thoughts andactions on Martin Luther King Day
to the remembrance and honor of his legacy.

Community MLK Events
Monday, January 18th, 2021 | 10am-11:30 am (EST)

This event through U of M features two speakers, Gloria House, poet, essayist, educator and human rights activist, and Malik Yakini, co-founder and Executive Director of the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network (DBCFSN).

We are expecially proud to support Malik Kenyatta Yakini, who is co-founder and Executive Director of the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network (DBCFSN). DBCFSN operates a seven-acre urban farm and is spearheading the opening of the Detroit People’s Food Co-op, a cooperatively grocery story in Detroit’s North End. Yakini views the work of DBCFSN as part of the larger movement for building power, self-determination, and justice. He is adamantly opposed to the system of white supremacy, capitalism and patriarchy. He has an intense interest in contributing to the development of an international food sovereignty movement that embraces Black communities in the Americas, the Caribbean and Africa. He is a co-founder of the National Black Food and Justice Alliance.

Orange-Ginger Carrot “Noodles”

Recipe Information

Total Time: 

50 minutes; 20 minutes active




  • 6 large carrots
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon finely-chopped fresh ginger
  • Zest from 1 large orange
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes


  1. Heat the oven to 400°F. Slice the carrots lengthwise into thin planks, then stack and slice into sticks, about 1/4 by 1/4 inches or thinner. Place the carrot strips on a sheet pan with a rim and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, the ginger, and half of the zest. Add coarse salt and toss to coat. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring after 15. The carrots are done when they are tender when pierced with a knife and lightly browned on the edges. Cooking time will vary according to thickness.
  2. While the carrots cook, mix the remaining olive oil, orange zest, parsley and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. To serve, toss carrots with the olive oil mixture.

Serving Suggestion

Serve on top of or alongside cooked salmon fillets for a main dish, or place leftover cold soba noodles in a bowl, add the carrot “noodles” and drizzle with Thai peanut sauce.
