Project EAT

Project EAT

The Junior League of Detroit’s ‘Project EAT’ creates a more food secure community by providing Education, Access, and Tools to those in need.

Project EAT was created in 2012 to help address food insecurity in the city of Detroit. Together, with our community partners, we asked what we could do to help make a difference to families in need.

It was determined there was a critical need for kitchen items to ensure families have everything they would need to be able to cook meals at home – in essence, a kitchen kit.

By the end of 2014 Project EAT was firmly established as our key community impact initiative. We continually build and develop the program to provide more Education, give additional Access and supply Tools to those in need.

Since 2014 we have donated:

  • 400+ Kitchen Kits to Humble Design
  • 6 Kitchen Kits to Cass Community Social Services
  • 21 crock pot gift bags to employees of the Empowerment Plan

The 400+ kitchen kits we have donated, so far, have had a dramatic effect on the lives of the families we work with. It has been determined families that eat together stay together.

Every year we continue to raise money for Project EAT and evolve the project, adding and expanding elements, and incorporating additional community partners.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our community partners, IKEA, Meijer, our supporters, donors, sponsors and trained volunteers for all their help and support – together we are making a difference.
