Tracy Gates, owner of The Busy Bee Cafe here in Atlanta, has certainly shown herself committed to the fight to end child sex trafficking. In honor of youthSpark Voices, Busy Bee donated catering for the 2013 Graduation and Recognition Ceremony. youthSpark Voices is the first prevention/early intervention program in Georgia working with girls deemed high risk for child sex trafficking involvement. When asked why she got involved with youthSpark and the fight to end child sex trafficking, Gates replied, "because I'm in the food business, that's the greatest way I can give back."
With Gates, donating food is just the beginning. Whether it's donating clothes or helping with local donation drives, Gates is always at the ready. "It's whenever they call," says Gates. She continues, "Anytime that you can go beyond yourself, especially for children who don't ask for these situations is reason for getting involved. Gates has long expressed her commitment to the well-being of at-risk and inner city youth. In addition to her partnership with youthSpark, Gates also serves with Hands on Atlanta - a local nonprofit organization.
For Gates, good food has circulated through her family for years. Named after an observation of bees in motion, The Busy Bee Cafe in Atlanta was passed down to Tracey Gates from her father. Reflecting on her chance to run the restaurant, Gates said, "I wanted to have my turn, but wanted to brand it. It's not just about a business that I inherited, it's a place that God gave me."
It certainly is evident that Gates has made Busy Bee her own. Knowing that, "the size is what people come for," Gates is purposeful in retaining the authenticity of what Busy Bee sells. Gates made it her prerogative to learn the nature of the product which she then documented for all to share. "There is a recipe for everything here - that teaches us not to lose our hand in cooking a specific dish. In her journey of owning a restaurant and learning what will sustain the business, Gates simply explains, "I want to be able to deliver a great product."
Tying her first love of food back to why she became involved in the fight to end child sex trafficking Gates reflects, "Your gifts and talents are within. When you reach inside yourself that's when you succeed."
