Why waste food when so many people don’t have good food to eat? Our Upcycling Kitchen located in Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church in Detroit makes use of all sorts of edible, nutritious food and keeps it from going to waste.

Each week, our chefs create meals for the community using food that needs to be cooked before heading out the door. Ingredients like farm surpluses and food distributor closeouts along with unexpected nutrients like brewer grain and juice pulp turn into delicious dishes for eaters to enjoy.
