2023 Chicago Peace Fellow
CEO, Gods Flava & Grace

Cecilia Victory is the CEO of Gods Flava & Grace where she runs Flava Food 4 the Soul whose mission is to provide safety and shelter for the unhoused. Cecilia’s passion is cooking and catering to her community and she had the pleasure of owning a restaurant in the North Lawndale Community.  In 2021, she closed her restaurant and joined Stone Temple Church on the quest to “fight hunger, provide social services and shelter to brothers and sisters in the North Lawndale Community.”  She believes that this type of service will reduce violence, establish family unity and provide a sense of dignity for those she serves.
