"Yumbitz are mini cookies on a big mission.
Founder Monica Marks-Martin stepped into the Cooking School to show us how she makes her cookies with a cause.
Every time a pouch is purchased, 10% of the proceeds go to a community organization to help combat child hunger in the metro Detroit area. She chose to do this because she's passionate about the community, children, and cookies -- "because who doesn't like cookies?" she asks."
"Monica, talk a little bit more about how you had the courage to start your own business, after you'd already fallen on hard times"

Co-founder & Owner
whether it's the sicilian bloodlines, or the piercing blue eyes that will keep you honest, this 5'2" gal is not to be messed with. a detroit native, she started baking cookies for her friends and family over 20 years ago as a way to say "i love you". now, she wants to share that love with her neighbors by feeding hungry children and assisting in the detroit renaissance.
and with over 9 years experience in sales & marketing for the food and beverage industry, she has just the right plan to take care of those in need!
Chief Cookie Officer
she may only be 3 feet tall; however, don't question her ability to taste. she knows the finer things, especially when they're as sweet as she is!
