Long-awaited Detroit People’s Food Co-op nears opening 

The May 1 scheduled opening of Detroit People’s Food Co-op is a decade in the making.

“I’m excited. I’m excited for Detroiters,” Food Co-op board President Lanay Gilbert-Williams said of the new community-owned and -run grocery. “There have been countless, countless people who’ve been involved in creating this co-op for over a decade: from the Detroit Black Community Food Sovereignty Network who envisioned the co-op, to the initial steering committee member/owners who volunteer to be on all of the committees, the board members.”
