Nestled in the north end of Church Hill, in an area not far from some of the restaurants that helped put Richmond on the national dining map, is a humble and petite food shop on a mission to feed its neighbors. Michelle Parrish talks with us about Soul N’ Vinegar, her oasis in a food desert, which serves "diverse foods for diverse peoples." Inspired by an entrepreneurial reality show and seeing friends running their own businesses, Michelle decided to take her years of culinary experience to an underserved community. She explains her journey, how she got the funds to build her business, and the secret to her vegan mayo.
