About People's Grocery


Dear friends, colleagues and supporters of People’s Grocery:
We are sad to report that Wanda Stewart has transitioned out of People's Grocery.  The board and staff are in the process of deciding what comes next for the organization.  Our commitment to food justice and the community remain as strong as ever.  We’ve asked Patricia St.Onge to return as Acting Executive Director to support the immediate path forward.  If you have questions, suggestions, or want more information, please don’t hesitate to contact Pat.  Her email is patricia@peoplesgrocery.org. Christine Hernandez continues to manage our office while Heather Smith and Larry Davis are working with residents in the garden at the California Hotel.  



Our Vision

Our vision is evolving as the global conversation around food access strengthens. At People’s Grocery, our feet are firmly planted in the soil, but we have big dreams. The future of our community – and the world – is at stake, if a healthy, sustainable, and equitable food system does not flourish to provide for our children and generations ahead. The food justice movement needs community-driven organizations that focus on forward-thinking strategies, proactively shape national dialogue, create spaces to cultivate grassroots leadership, implement replicable local programming, and advocate with a racial justice lens. We continue to work diligently to develop asset-based solutions, and to refine our programs to ensure they are economically viable and easily replicable. With our solid history, expertise and reputation, People’s Grocery is singularly positioned to spearhead national efforts. We have a wealth of knowledge, support, and asset-driven solutions. Our roots run deep!

By assisting with our efforts, you can expedite the pace of transformation within the food justice movement at a critical time in its development. Together, we can help create lasting socioeconomic change and build a stronger nation.
