Foodlab Detroit has for the last five years been helping over 150 restaurants all over the Metro Detroit area, mostly owned by people of color. We are pleased to present the curriculum and intent of the good work of FoodLab Detroit to our South Side restaurants. FoodLab Chicago.

This is a challenging time for our community.  The new FoodLab Chicago is a vital resource for the South Side’s small businesses that have been hard-hit by COVID-19. As our community fights the virus, our businesses have seen steep declines in revenues and customers. FoodLab Chicago is here to help you. As a FoodLab Chicago member, you will be one of 18 Chicago food-based businesses located in Greater Chatham, South Shore, and Bronzeville. You’ll get free hands-on consulting and industry insider information from food-business experts to help you survive and sustain through these tough COVID-19 times. You’ll benefit from our newly designed Rapid Response, Recovery and  Resiliency COVID-19 program.
