Celebrating Four Years of Impact
Fresh Corner is a mission-driven food service provider working toward a fresher, healthier, and even more delicious Detroit. Through a commitment to continuous improvement and grassroots community engagement, we have built a growing track record of high-impact low-cost solutions that sustainably increase access to affordable healthy foods in Detroit and our surrounding communities. We acknowledge the fundamental roles convenience and affordability play in fresh food access and combines best practices with innovation in a way that leverages existing infrastructure, minimizes cost structure, and maximizes impact and scalability.
In the past four years, our two signature programs—Fresh Corners and Fresh Markets— have partnered with 87 corner stores, community centers, and schools to generate $2.6M in value to society. This work is made possible by our fantastic friends, customers, partners, and funders who have helped us push toward a future in which deliciously healthy foods are affordable, convenient, and accessible for all.
