Kim’s Produce is Taking A Stand in Detroit by offering local produce and health alternatives to residents in the city at 4206 Woodward Avenue Detroit, MI. The owners, Kim and Hollis Smith, were able to educate the students more about the realities of factory farming and the health benefits of eating local organic produce. They have a compelling story of why they have chosen this type of business, where it is located, and getting it off the ground.
The genesis of this video came from the Take A Stand challenge to youth and community members to find stories that resonate with them. They interview owners, other employees and customers of the store. Kim’s Produce has a great store and we hope more people support the business!
The video was produced by the student EFEX Program, started by director of Bilal’s Stand, Sultan Sharrief and edited by Alex Shein. Detroit youth were taken through the filmmaking process and asked to find local individuals, groups, and businesses that represented Take A Stand to them. They were then able to compile a handful of videos in the name of Take A Stand… learn more about the EFEX Program at studentefex.net.
