Vegan Soul Makes Cruelty-Free An East-Side Option

Support our GoFundMe Campaign

It was serendipity that the nearest restaurant to Alt Space would be vegan. Detroit Vegan Soul is at 8029 Agnes St. in Detroit, MI. You can find your favorite comfort foods and enjoy them with the confidence that the ingredients are fresh, mostly organic, and completely plant-based. They have several soy free and gluten-free options and the entire menu is prepared without GMOs, additives, preservatives, refined flours, sugars, dairy, eggs or animal by products.

detroit Vegan Soul is the creation of Detroit native Erika Boyd and North Carolina transplant Kirsten Ussery. They decided to adopt a vegan diet after losing Erika’s father to cancer. Erika began experimenting with “veganizing” family recipes to bring that wholesome familiarity to her new found cuisine. The food became a hit with family and friends and she began planning menus for what would become Detroit Vegan Soul meal delivery and catering.

Detroit Vegan Soul was born out of our desire to make good, healthy food accessible to everyone, and to break the cycle of diet related diseases in families and communities. Their journey began in February 2012 with a meal delivery and catering company which served the greater Downtown Detroit area. The response was overwhelming!

Detroit Vegan Soul has a mission to help people live healthier lives by providing great-tasting, high-quality, nutritious vegan food that appeals to everyone, while at the same time supporting a sustainable earth. They partner with local food providers such as Sweet Magnolia’s, The Brinery, Earthworks, Keep Growing Detroit and D Town farms – who provide seasonal organic produce. These partners also take back food waste for composting.

Detroit Vegan Soul is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm. They are open Sundays for brunch from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm. No trip to Islandview would be complete for us without a trip. We look forward to partnering with Detroit Vegan Souls as yet another local business doing their part to uplift the community.
