Hey friends,

We wholeheartedly regret having to tell you all that Hella Vegan Eats is being displaced and our final service will be on February 28th 2019. We have been asked to leave our current location after three years of building community here. We are deeply heartbroken to be in this position and because of many personal tragedies, this displacement has left us feeling totally decimated, emotionally exhausted, and unable to navigate forward.

Our biggest accomplishment as a business over the years as been our ability to offer employment to queer, trans, POC and to build community around mutual aid and inclusion. And now it's all being placed on hold until we can re-establish ourselves in a new location.

We are reaching out to our community for support to help us rebuild a secure spot and to support our employees during a period of unemployment. Any money raised here will directly help our current employees to be paid and help us offset moving costs as soon as we get them.

We have been avidly scouting locations and we are hopeful that re-building is soon on the horizon but getting there is going to be extraordinarily difficult.

If you have any means to help support this queer-trans POC owned and operated business, please consider donating.

We began selling tamales at Art Murmur 10 years ago as queer babies at age 21. This has been a constant dream to establish a space in Oakland where people of all walks can be a part of supporting trans-queer people all the while enjoying previously undreamed flavors, foods and experiences of community.

Supporting and sharing this gofundme will directly support our dream and help our outstanding crew of rad people. We truly need you now. Any and all support will be treasured in our hearts forever.

Thank you all so again for your continued support of Hella Vegan Eats. We have been so overwhelmed by the amount of love and best wishes y’all have been sending our way. We are a trans-queer poc owned and operated business that strives so badly to be a glittery glamour of hope for our own community. We have heard your call and plan to stay in business as long as possible! We’re looking space and want to get back to serving y’all ASAP!
We’ve raised the campaign to 30k due to an superabundance of cheer and hope for us. This will fund a new location and get us where we need to be.
Thank you so much, we love y’all! Plz share and donate if you can xoxo
