On August 14th, the Detroit refinery’s Detroit Forward team hosted its second installment of the Kemeny Fueling Detroit series with the Southwest Detroit Farmers Market. The event featured 36 local businesses from SW Detroit and the greater downriver area. Over 200 residents attended the event, along with quite a few MRD employees stopping by to support local businesses. Two 48217 restaurants (Two Fat Boys & a Grill and Catfish and a Cure) were featured, providing free catfish dinners and corned beef sandwiches to all that attended. MRD employees hosted two tables at the event – one to teach residents about what goes on at the refinery, and another hosted by the women’s network to pass out free feminine hygiene products from the nonprofit, Helping Women Period. We have two more events for this series — The Back to School Blitz (Saturday, September 11th) and the Health and Harvest Fair (Saturday, October 9th).
