Local Grocery Stores

Neighborhood Grocery

Taste the Diaspora

A 2017 study by the Detroit Food Policy Council showed that around 30,000 Detroiters do not have access to a full-line grocery store.

Upcycling

using food to its fullest to feed more people & keep nutritious food out of landfills

Make Food Not Waste

Detroit generates 114k tons of food waste each year, the majority of which is landfilled.

Compost

keeping resources in the city & recycling nutrients back into the soil to grow more food
