First Fridays @ Mandela Grocery 9/6/19

Center Street and 7th Street Oakland, CA 94607
across from West Oakland BART

We’re expanding onto Center Street again!

September will be our last pop-up in the series with Mandela Grocery Cooperative as our host for 2019. Check our website for the latest information about other events during the rest of 2019 and beyond.

We are very excited to bring you Recipes to Re-Activate “Us” to Re-Indigenize.

Recipes to Re-Activate (R2R) is an ongoing, curated, urban and rural pathway, and a workshop series designed to reconnect us to our native land practices, native ingredients, and ancestral dishes, lifestyles, and cultures. R2R will cultivate a cooperative network of relationships with foodies, chefs, cooks, families, youth, seniors, urban and rural farmers, ranchers, gardeners, designers, artists, and herbalists. This is about sharing recipes of resilience and collaborating to strengthen community through food.

Join us for an expanded Village full of love, healing, food, fun, and family.

Come out & activate with us at Mandela Grocery Cooperative!
