|About:||upporting growth of Detroit health and wellness business that promotes preventative health care through healthy meals.|
|Investment:||$25,000 loan by Fair Food Network's Fair Food Fund|
|Partners:||Fair Food Network|
This loan is helping the meal-subscription service hire six staffers through the City of Detroit’s job program, Detroit at Work.
Farmacy Food launched during the pandemic, bringing a new healthy, affordable meal subscription service to its Detroit-area customers and much more. That “more” is that it’s become a pillar in the Detroit food community, selling a locally sourced plant and meat-based menu with Ethiopian, Indian,
Caribbean, and Mexican influences that’s generated a 1,000-plus-person waitlist. Co-owners CEO Kwaku Osei and Chief Culinary and Operations Chef Phil Jones started the business with limited resources. Fair Food Fund first partnered with Farmacy Food to provide business assistance, helping to bolster its brand strategy, website, and social media presence.
