Fighting Racial, Economic, Social, and Food inequity through People. Place. Prosperity.
The South LA Cafe Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit affiliate of South LA Cafe aims to break the shackles of systemic oppression and inequality by creating, building, and empowering an equitable, healthy, and sustainable South Central community for all people. Our model focuses on the following three pillars.
#1: PEOPLE: EMPOWERING OUR FAMILIES
Lifting barriers to human rights and healthy ecosystems by creating access to resources and developing a social safety net.
#2: PLACE: CREATING OUR COMMUNITY
Rejecting cultural erasure and displacement by creating equitable and thriving community spaces and experiences.
#3#: PROSPERITY: BUILDING OUR ECONOMY
Combatting gentrification and corporate development by building a sustainable and self-determined local economy.
Our pillars address many of the social issues facing the underserved and under-resourced Black & Brown community through the following programs:
THE GROCERY GIVEAWAY: Fresh & Healthy Food Distribution
THE ACADEMY: Workforce Training Program
THE ACCELERATOR: Entrepreneur Training Program
THE INCUBATOR: Business Development Program
HELP US FEED THE PEOPLE
Food is a human right. Let's fight food inequity and level the playing field.
