About People's Grocery

People's Grocery's mission is to improve the health and local economy of West Oakland by offering holistic programs which encourage a diversified, local and sustainable community while facilitating conversations about racial equity and its impact on the community. 

We believe:

  • Access to healthy food, information, shelter, joy, and love are basic human rights.
  • Community Engagement is critical to changing the food system.
  • Movement toward increased love, light, and joy will happen through creating access to healthy food and information about the consumption of healthy foods.
  • Self-determination is a key element to community sovereignty and must be centered around historical residents
  • Building relationships across difference increases the health and wealth of the community.
  • Healing is a form of liberation.
