We hope you are all safe and healthy.
As a business we have always fought for a healthier planet and food system. We have always fought for inclusivity and accessibility.
As two queer POC women running a small business it felt like it’s own activism. Honestly it felt Sisyphean sometimes just surviving. But our anxieties range from “Why is the fridge making that sound?” “When will the AC get fixed?” “Will we make payroll?” “Did the delivery guy just call me sweety?” Our daily cluster of anxieties never includes “Will one of us get murdered by a police officer today?” It’s become clear that ALL of us that enjoy any privilege whatsoever must do MORE.
We must actively fight against systemic racism. We must organize for justice. We must hold our leaders accountable. We must hold law enforcement accountable. This is a human rights issue long long long overdue for being addressed. It’s unfortunate that it has taken countless lives to make people see. But now it’s time for action.
BLACK LIVES MATTER.
Tomorrow, June 1st, We are back open for takeout, delivery, grab-and-go, and pantry items. More info on that later.
For this week, we will be donating proceeds to @blmlosangeles and @aclu_nationwide . “Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.”
