Grantee - Mandela Partners - FY19-20
Mandela Partners is a vital resource for fresh fruit and veggies at their brick and mortar store in West Oakland. They also provide food to residents throughout West and East Oakland at their pop-up farm stands at libraries, corner stores and elementary schools. They are partnering with StopWaste to engage community members on how to get the most out of their food, not only through in-person and neighborhood networks, but also using videos and other creative approaches during COVID. In this time of need, Mandela is a hub for getting food boxes to families and farm workers in need.
