Funding Healthy West Oakland

$7,170 of $200,000 goal

Raised by 60 people in 15 months
Mandela Grocery Cooperative is raising $ 200,000 for equipment and development costs associated with our business expansion. 

Change in Plans!

Our initial expansion plan was to move into the much larger corner location on our block, this year.  But due a recent major partnership ending, we've decided to re-focus our resources, minimize our potential debt and stay where we are, for now.   We're re-channeling our resources (including your contribution here) to remodel our current space, expand our product mix and help open other worker-owned grocery stores in Vallejo, East Oakland and the Bayview area in San Francisco. 

For almost a decade, we are creating a dynamic healthy food system and culture  that also provides education, professional development and business ownership opportunities for our people. We are a direct link to the historical African American community that once thrived in West Oakland. We're healing ourselves and Nourishing our Neighborhood as our revival. 

Your donation will go directly to
- purchasing new equipment for our store.
- keep fresh local produce accessible to all residents of West Oakland.
- help a small worker-owned  businesses hold space in rapidly changing neighborhoods. 
- help sustain local, family-owned and cooperative farms and food businesses.


Thank you for your contribution and cooperation.
We Love You!
-All of us
