This will be your chance (one of many!) to tour our space, get to know us a little better, ask questions, and, most importantly, help us to shape and prioritize our programs!
The mission of People’s Kitchen Detroit is to co-create a safe, respectful and inclusive space where Detroiters can access affordable healthy local and bulk foods, learn and share empowering skills to plan and prepare healthy meals, holistically manage and prevent disease, and preserve local harvests while building community strength through food security, activism and a deeper connection to the Earth. As we move forward with realizing this vision, community input is vital to shaping our offerings. The Friday 5/11 event will be the first of many input sessions.

Values & Principles – People’s Kitchen Detroit is informed and inspired by the Earth Charter, People of Color Environmental Justice Principles and Principles of Working Together, International Declaration of Human Rights, Principles of Food Sovereignty, Youth Food Bill of Rights, Humane Education and the City of Detroit Policy
on Food Security.
We are committed to active participation in the creation of a just local food system. Through our skill shares, cook shares, healthy food pantry, cafe offerings, mobile food bus and gardens, as well as our participation in the Detroit Food Justice Task Force and the Undoing Racism in the Detroit Food System gatherings, we strive to bring our principles into every facet of our work as a model for sustainable and ethical practices that can be replicated throughout the city and beyond.
Safe, healthy, culturally relevant, and affordable food options are a basic human right. We are dedicated to sourcing and serving the highest quality, locally-grown and produced food at affordable prices,
where no one is turned away for lack of funds.
We affirm and honor the lived experience of all people. We strive to operate a non-hierarchical space – all participants are supported to share and learn from one another’s innate intuitive wisdom, life experiences, and ideas. Our programs are open to all who are interested through sliding-scale pricing and alternative means of payment including time-banking and volunteering.

In Health, Joy & Liberation,
Angela, Gregg and the PKD crew
