Community Kitchen

The construction of a community kitchen is warranted to fully address the residents’ expressed priorities of preservation and promotion of cultural identity and access to a local community kitchen.

MexicantownCDC pursues funding to include and promote cultural-culinary programming and introduce culinary entrepreneurship opportunities—proven areas of growing interest by community residents.
Food entrepreneurs exist in Mexicantown-Southwest Detroit and have little access to capital to expand their existing food business. The project will intentionally invest resources in immigrants and those who have historically been excluded from wealth-building business enterprises.The kitchen will be available for rental too.
