About us

Small Batch Detroit is more than a gift shop featuring the most delicious artisanal local foods. As a program of the Detroit Food Academy, we have three primary goals:
  • Offer real-world employment and career opportunities for Detroit Food Academy high school graduates. $0.30 of every dollar spent directly employs a young Detroiter at a minimum of $12.50 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.
