How Detroit Chefs Are Feeding Those In Need  

It’s been just over a year since Michigan’s restaurants were forced to close indoor dining for the first time.

In that time many chefs pivoted from their restaurants to working with nonprofit groups on a new task: feeding their increasingly hungry communities.

The pandemic has exacerbated food insecurity across the country. In Detroit, it was already 39% before the pandemic.

“Once the pandemic hit, of course, that number heightened dramatically,” chef Ederique Goudia tells All Things Considered. “Now we have our next door neighbors, our parents, our sisters, our friends who are now food insecure as well.”

Goudia was just named one of Detroit’s “food fighters” by the Detroit Free Press for making a positive impact on her community. In addition to being the co-owner of Gabriel Hall, an upcoming creole restaurant, bar and music venue, Goudia works with groups promoting food access.
