About us

Small Batch Detroit is more than an online gift shop featuring amazingly delicious foods. As an extension of the Detroit Food Academy, we have three primary goals:
  • Offer meaningful employment and career opportunities for DFA high school graduates starting at $11 per hour. Graduates participate in workshops, obtain certifications, and assume new responsibilities to earn increased roles and wages up to $15 per hour.
  • Form an essential component of a multi-pronged food-rooted pipeline for young Detroiters to actualize as healthy, connected, and powerful leaders.
  • Provide a sustainable and diversified funding stream that ensures Detroit Food Academy’s lasting presence and impact on the lives of young Detroiters.
