OUR STORY

UHURU MEANS FREEDOM

Uhuru Foods & Pies (UFP) is one of the dynamic economic development institutions of Black Star Industries.

Uhuru Foods & Pies is a popular progressive tradition at Farmers Markets, festivals, street fairs and outside grocery and gift stores where our delicious pies, healthy and tasty breakfasts and mouth-watering festival food have been enjoyed by Bay Area residents for more than three decades.

But Uhuru Foods & Pies is about so much more than producing tasty edibles.

Named for the Swahili word for “freedom,” Uhuru Foods & Pies is a subsidiary of Black Star Industries (BSI), a black-led self-determination program of the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP), the worldwide organization building for African liberation and unification.

Uhuru Foods & Pies is not a business owned by an individual, but a part of an independent African economy that African people are building to once again own and control our resources, including our own land, food
production and distribution.

This is what makes Uhuru Foods & Pies unique. It’s not just a great pie or breakfast; it’s a cause that forwards the right of African people ourselves to determine our own lives and future, control our own land, resources, food, distribution, and means of production.

Uhuru Foods & Pies is not a business owned by an individual, but a part of an independent African economy that African people are building to once again own and control our resources, including our own land, food production and distribution.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT, NOW, MORE THAN EVER

Uhuru Foods & Pies asks all of our supports to contribute generously at this time. Putting the safety and health of staff, volunteers, customers and supporters FIRST has meant that we have had to temporarily close or severely slow down our operations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic severely exacerbates the conditions of systemic oppression and poverty that African people face, one of many injustices at the core of the current nationwide uprisings. While the U.S. government is giving away trillions of dollars of taxpayers’ money to large corporations, like Walmart and the airlines, Uhuru Foods & Pies has always worked and continues to work in the interest of our African community.

It is only the people who are supporting the Independent African Economy. Give generously and give as often as you can, now!

It is imperative that Uhuru Foods & Pies survive this period and come out even stronger!
