Want to create real change this holiday season! Help Uhuru Foods & Pies sell 10,000 pies for Black Power Blueprint!

Are you a people person? Like to be outdoors? Come help us sell our scrumptious homemade pies at our outdoor pop-up pie tables in Oakland, SF and Berkeley. We will be outside of several different Peet’s Coffees and Safeways. You will work with one of our pie table coordinators to hand out pietasters to people walking by, help sell pies to people who stop by the table and basically interact with the public. Again, no sales experience necessary and we train you on the spot!

Uhuru Foods & Pies is one of the economic institutions of Black Star Industries and it is about putting the means to grow, produce and distribute fresh food into the hands of African people. Currently this is happening right now through the Black Power Blueprint in St. Louis that’s building commerce and sustainability in African communities through African self-determination and self-reliance. The programs include a completed Uhuru House community center, the Jiko community kitchen (opening in 2019), and an outdoor event space in development. It stops gentrification from ravaging every black and indigenous community like we see happening right now in Oakland! And it’s a plan with solutions that can be carried out in every African community literally all over the world.

Pick a date or two and sign up today!
