Community Empowerment

What we do?

What We Do

The majority of our work is done on a volunteer basis by passionate and dedicated community members that share our vision. Throughout 2020 we have been able to deliver over 1,000 food boxes to under-served communities. Along with the produce, dairy, and dry goods, we have delivered face masks and hand sanitizer.

We have offered virtual fitness classes and online healthy meal prep demonstrations. We have also provided over 100 community members with household items, hygiene, and culturally specific self-care products. For those who aren’t able to drive, we deliver to them, all free of charge.

Connecting the Community

Local Partnerships?

Local Partnerships

In the spirit of “Not recreating the wheel”, it is our desire to continue to partner other black-led organizations, groups and businesses to increase their visibility and bring community members to the resources and services they have to offer.

We’ve work alongside black- led organizations such as Black Food Sovereignty CouncilImagine BlackBlack Educational Achievement MovementThe Melanated SisterhoodCoalition of Black Men and we aim to collaborate with many more in 2021.
