SUSTAINABILITY AT THE STATION: DETROIT STREET FILLING STATION
Phillis Engelbert, a long-time Ann Arbor resident and once acclaimed social activist, never thought herself a restaurateur; but following her abiding passion for vegan eats and community fellowship made her one. What started with hosting dinner parties for neighbors and friends has now morphed into the Ann Arbor favorite, Detroit Street Filling Station (and sister property, the Lunch Room Bakery & Café, also located in Ann Arbor).
FARM TO FOLK: A GLIMPSE AT FOLK DETROIT’S SUSTAINABILITY EFFORTS

This lead the classically trained chef and food educator to help develop the concept of The Farmer’s Hand, a farm stand providing locally sourced produce to Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood (and the precursor of sorts to what we now know as Folk Market and Café).
