Life is short and precious. After realizing the benefits of vegan food choices, Kirsten Ussery wanted to pass it on to the community. That is why Detroit Vegan Soul has made it their mission to help people live healthier lives by providing great-tasting, high-quality, nutritious vegan food, that appeals to all taste buds, while at the same time supporting a sustainable earth.

A 2012 Finalist in the Hatch Detroit Contest, Detroit Vegan Soul has since opened up on Agnes Street in Detroit’s West Village. Recently a recipient of Hatch Alumni spot grant funding, they were able to install a new walk-in cooler to keep up with growing demand for their food.
