Our Story


  Once upon a time the Hope District bustled with work that created wealth, dignity, and optimism. Residents and workers were warned that these economic boom times were threatened by global competition and complacency but they did not take heed. Because of that, things began to decline. Consequently, residents and workers lost wealth, dignity, and optimism. Until one day our community came together and created Detroit  Friends Potato Chips food product as a way to add new purpose to vacant lots inside of the Hope District which in turn created opportunities for new employment that has created wealth, work, and helped to regain our dignity.

 Some of the potatoes for these were born on a vacant lot in Detroit's Hope District. They were nursed is our soup

kitchen for mentally and physically challenged. They are made by community activists in an effort  to bring work,hope and dignity to our vulnerable community. Some proceeds go to maintain the soup Kitchen and to create other financially sustainable grassroots projects.

"It's thick and filling and feels closer to "real food" than the thin pieces of fried air you get at the gas station or party store.

The chips aren't like any other chips you'll pick up in the store. They're noticeably wholesome, and they taste homemade. They're fried and spiced by hand. They taste like something you made in your own kitchen.
